A new horror novel adaptation is on its way to Netflix and this one aims to bring Todd Grimson's Brand New Cherry Flavor to life. As reported by Deadline, the 1996 book is set to become an eight-episode series exclusive to the streaming platform and is described as a horror-thriller revenge story set in ‘90s Los Angeles. The series comes our way via Channel Zero’s Nick Antosca.
Headlining the cast for the adaptation is Rosa Salazar (Alita: Battle Angel, Undone), who will be joined by Catherine Keener (Kidding, Get Out), Eric Lange (Escape at Dannemora, Unbelievable), Jeff Ward (Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), and Manny Jacinto (The Good Place).
Brand New Cherry Flavor follows an aspiring film director in 1990s Los Angeles who embarks on a mind-altering journey of supernatural revenge from the streets of Beverly Hills to the forests of Brazil. The series is written by Antosca alongside Lenore Zion, with the former also directing the first episode and will produce through his Eat the Cat production banner.
There’s no word yet on when this series will be ready, but you can expect more news and updates ahead right here on Dead Entertainment. Stay tuned!
