Netflix Orders 10 Episodes of Drama 'The One' Created by Howard Overman

Netflix has today given a series order to the original drama series The One created by Howard Overman (Misfits). Based on the novel by John Marrs, the drama has been picked up for a 10-episode first season.

Set "five minutes in the future" in a world where a DNA test can reveal a person's perfect partner - the one you're genetically predisposed to fall passionately in love with. But it also raises other questions: Who hasn't thought about whether there is someone better out there? What if a hair sample is all it takes to find them? The idea is simple, but the implications are explosive.

Overman will executive produce with Johnny Capps and Julian Murphy. Urban Myth produces in association with Netflix.
