Netflix Has Been KILLING It Lately.
A dystopian world where human-animal hybrids are blamed, and hunted, for being different...
Horror filmmaker Jim Mickle (Stake Land, We Are What We Are) directs Sweet Tooth, the highly anticipated adaptation of the DC comic book series by Jeff Lemire.
The series releases on June 4th.
The trailer explains the show appears to take place years after "The Great Crumble" which had changed everything. In this world, a hybrid deer-boy develops a relationship with a wondering loner.
“We wanted to make a show that offers escape and adventure, where nature is reclaiming the world and in many ways, it feels like a fairytale,” the filmmaker explained. “‘Sweet Tooth’ is a new kind of dystopian story, it’s very lush and hopeful. We want people to come into this world where there’s beauty and hope and adventure. This is a sweeping story — we ride on trains, climb mountaintops, run through forests. This is a show about what makes a family, what home really means, and why it’s important to keep faith in humanity.”
The first season of Sweet Tooth consists of eight 60-minute long episodes.
Cast: Christian Convery (Gus), Nonso Anozie (Tommy Jepperd), Adeel Akhtar (Dr. Aditya Singh), Aliza Vellani (Rani Singh), Stefania LaVie Owen (Bear), Dania Ramirez (Aimee Eden), Neil Sandilands (General Abbot), with Will Forte (Father) all star with James Brolin as the narrator.
