Netflix shared a first look trailer for “Daybreak,” a dark comedy coming to the service on October 24th. The series is based on the graphic novel by Brian Ralph, and the story follows 17-year-old high school outcast Josh, as he searches for his missing girlfriend in post-apocalyptic Glendale, California.
Josh is joined by a ragtag group of misfits including a pyromaniac 12-year-old named Angelica, and Josh’s former high school bully Wesley, who is now a pacifist samurai. In the story, Josh tries to stay alive while navigating the horde of Mad Max-style gangs (evil jocks, cheerleaders turned Amazon warriors), zombie-like creatures called Ghoulies, and everything else this brave new world throws at him.
Netflix has already ordered ten episodes of the series, which has Showrunner, Co-Creator, and Executive Producer Aron Eli Coleite (Locke & Key, Star Trek: Discovery, Heroes) behind it. The other Co-Creator is also the Director and Executive Producer, and that would be Brad Peyton (Frontier, Rampage, producing through ASAP Entertainment).
If you’re a fan of the genre, you can watch the official trailer below.
Earlier this week Netflix announced a new adaptation of “Way Station,” based on the Hugo Award-Winning novel by Clifford D. Simak. The official logline for the movie reads, “For more than 100 years Enoch Wallace has been the keeper of a Way Station on Earth for intergalactic alien travelers as they teleport across the universe. But the gifts of knowledge and immortality that his intergalactic guests have bestowed upon him are proving to be a nightmarish burden, for they have opened Enoch’s eyes to humanity’s impending destruction. Still, one final hope remains for the human race.”
Netflix also announced a new deal with Millie Bobby Brown and her sister Paige Brown to bring “A Time Lost” to Netflix, and a new multi-year overall deal with “Wonder Woman” director Patty Jenkins. The streaming service is also working on a NASCAR comedy with Kevin James, and an animated-comedy called “Centaurworld,” where a battled warhorse is magically transported to a cute and cuddly fantasy world.
