The plot is centered around a cosmic cataclysm that threatens humanity, with the sun going from life source to a harbinger of death by destroying everything that comes in contact with its rays. In order to escape a deadly fate, a red-eye flight from Brussels heads west, carrying passengers and crew members from all walks of life, who have one thing in common: a desire to survive at all costs.

The project was inspired by “The Old Axolotl” writer Jacek Dukaj, who will executive produce the project alongside Tomek Bagiński (“The Witcher”). It will be directed by filmmaking duo Inti Calfat and Dirk Verheye (“Over Water”)

“Within this high-concept thriller, ‘Into the Night’ asks a basic question that’s heard a lot these days: Can people still unite for the greater good — or will self-interests tear us apart?” George said in a statement. “I was drawn to the idea that a commercial flight is a makeshift community, packing together strangers with different backgrounds and beliefs. Sometimes, this leads to the forming of friendships. Sometimes, it’s arguments over armrests.”

FEATURED STORIES

While none of the cast has yet been revealed, the series actors are said to hail from Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Russia and Turkey. Brussels-based production company Entre Chien et Loup (“Don Quixote”) will be producing the show.

On its official site, the streaming platform specifies that the first season of the sci-fi thriller will be composed of six episodes and is slated for release in 2020. RGA/JB
