Jamie Dornan to Play Identical Twins in Netflix Drama 'The Undertow'

Netflix has today given a series order to the original drama series The Undertow starring Jamie Dornan (The Fall, The Tourist). An episode count and premiere date window were not immediately announced.

Suffocating in a loveless marriage to Adam (Dornan), Nicola's life takes a dramatic turn when Adam's long-estranged identical twin brother Lee (also Dornan) comes crashing back into her life, and their tangled romantic past threatens to destroy the present. A split-second decision and a terrible accident drives Nicola to protect her children, and over the course of one week, Lee and Nicola are forced together, struggling to maintain a web of secrets and lies. Though they can't ignore their feelings for each other, they both know they're living on borrowed time.

In addition to Dornan, the cast will also feature Mackenzie Davis, Iain De Caestecker and Gary Lewis.

Kristoffer Metcalfe developed the drama based on the Nordisk Film Production series Twin. He will executive produce with Dornan, Sarah Dollard, Nira Park, Rachael Prior, David Flynn, Paul Lee and director Jeremy Lovering. Complete Fiction and wiip will produce.
