Netflix’s Sci-Fi French drama “Osmosis” now has an official trailer. The new 8-episode series is available exclusively to Netflix and offers fans of the genre something to binge through this weekend. The story takes on tech giants and their algorithms, many of which guide us through almost every aspect of our lives. The new show focuses on dating apps, private data security, and our willingness to hand over major life-decisions to technology in hopes of finding a better life.
The story takes place in Paris, in the near future where apps are promising more than ever. Technology can now find your true love, analyzing a person’s brain data, by utilizing the new dating app “OSMOSIS.” The app promises a perfect match with 100% accuracy, and users will be paired with their perfect soulmate. It’s a pretty bold claim, but it would be better than almost any Tinder date we’ve been on in the past few months.
Netflix teased the series on social media adding “But is there a price to pay when letting an algorithm decide who you will love, forever and ever? When in exchange for this undying, ageless love, technology can access the innermost recesses of your mind — and the best kept secrets of your heart…”
Audrey Fouché (Les Revenants, Borgia) serves as Showrunner for the series and the show comes from Versailles’s producers Aude Albano and Claude Chelli. “Osmosis” is based on an idea originally produced by Telfrance (Newen group) & Arte France, the Netflix original series “Osmosis” was shot entirely in France. Aude Albano and Claude Chelli, are producers at CAPA Drama (part of the Newen group, with Newen Distribution facilitating the Osmosis deal).
With “Captain Marvel” set to hit theaters next weekend, most of the major studios decided not to release a film nationwide this week. If you aren’t interested in seeing “Tyler Perry’s A Madea Family Funeral,” or “Greta,” this new sci-fi series could be the perfect substitute.
