Netflix continues to greenlight new projects and give life to old franchises.
First is a live-action series about Wednesday Adams in school. Wednesday is the murderous daughter of the macabre Adams Family. We will see Wednesday attend the Nevermore Academy, probably named after Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Raven.” This will be the television directorial debut of Tim Burton.
The other new project is an anime in the world of DOTA 2 called “DOTA: Dragon’s Blood”. DOTA is one of the most popular video games in the world. With a deep roster, the series could go in many directions. The animation will be handled by Studio Mir, best known for The Legend of Korra and Young Justice. X-Men: First Class’s Ashley Edward Miller will serve as showrunner. The popularity of the game will ensure a successful launch for Netflix.
