Internet streaming giant Netflix announced plans for its latest new drama series on Wednesday, a supernatural mystery series set in the New York state tourist resort of Montauk.
The eight-episode series -- "Montauk" -- will premiere exclusively via Netflix in 2016, aiming to emulate the success of the network's acclaimed stable of shows such as "House of Cards," and "Orange is the New Black."
A Netflix statement said the series, written and directed by Matt and Ross Duffer would be set in Montauk in 1980, revolving around the intrigue which is uncovered when a young boy vanishes into thin air.
"Matt and Ross are emerging filmmakers with an unmistakable passion for genre and suspense. Their unique voice infuses this coming of age drama with supernatural thrills that will captivate our global audience," said Cindy Holland, vice president of original content for Netflix.
The Duffer brothers will serve as executive producers for the series along with Shawn Levy and Dan Cohen, Netflix said.
