Equinox is a character-driven supernatural thriller about a young woman named Astrid (Danica Curcic), who is very affected by the unexplainable disappearance of her sister and her school class in 1999. The series is set in Denmark and swipes back and forth between 1999, where it all started, and the present time.
Astrid is only nine years old in the year 1999 when a class of graduating students inexplicably disappears without a trace. Astrid, who is the sister of one of the missing students becomes traumatized and plagued by horrific visions after her sister’s disappearance.
21 years later in 2020, Astrid now hosts a late-night radio show when all of a sudden her nightmares reappear. When one of the three survivors from 1999 contacts her through her radio show and shortly after mysteriously dies, Astrid is determined to find out what happened to her sister and the class, only to discover a dark and unsettling truth that involves her in ways she never imagined.
The acclaimed podcast Equinox 1985 topped the iTunes podcast chart locally with its modern take on audio. The series is written for Netflix by creator Tea Lindeburg and is produced by Apple Tree Productions by producer Dorthe Riis Lauridsen and executive producer and CEO Piv Bernth.
The series is composed of six episodes and the Lead director for episode 1-4 is Søren Balle.
Bridgerton follows Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor), the eldest daughter of the powerful Bridgerton family as she makes her debut onto Regency London’s competitive marriage market. Hoping to follow in her parent’s footsteps and find a match sparked by true love, Daphne’s prospects initially seem to be unrivaled.
But as her older brother begins to rule out her potential suitors, the high society scandal sheet written by the mysterious Lady Whistledown (voiced by Julie Andrews) casts aspersions on Daphne. Enter the highly desirable and rebellious Duke of Hastings (Regé-Jean Page), committed bachelor and the catch of the season for the debutantes’ mamas.
Despite proclaiming that they want nothing the other has to offer, their attraction is undeniable and sparks fly as they find themselves engaged in an increasing battle of wits while navigating society’s expectations for their future.
