Netflix Orders 8 Episodes of Drama 'The Boroughs' Created by Jeffrey Addiss and Will Matthews

Netflix has today given a series order to the original drama series The Boroughs created by Jeffrey Addiss and Will Matthews (The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance). The first season will produce 8 episodes.

In a seemingly picturesque retirement community in the New Mexico desert, a group of unlikely heroes must band together to stop an otherworldly threat from stealing the one thing they don't have... time.

Addiss and Matthews will serve as showrunners. They will also executive produce with The Duffer Brothers (Matt and Ross) and Hilary Leavitt. Upside Down Pictures will produce in association with Netflix.

"We're thrilled to be back at Netflix," said Addiss and Matthews. "Working alongside the Duffer Brothers (who are pretty good at making shows) and their team has been a dream come true. They bring the perfect balance of heart and horror to our story. We can't wait for audiences around the world to unlock the dark mystery buried beneath the sunny facade of The Boroughs."
