Sam Mendes directing new series Red Zone

Sam Mendes. TV series. Netflix.

Television just gave us another reason to glue ourselves to the sofa.

The “Skyfall” and “1917” helmer will direct a secret (secret because, er, nobody knows shit about it) series for the streaming platform called “Red Zone”. While they don’t have the 411 on the plot, The Illuminerdi does have some characters deets –  which give us some sort of idea as to what kind of series we can expect.

It looks like Sam Mendes’ project is looking for three characters including, Brendan, a man in his 50s who is the manager of Dudley City whose job is forever being threatened. Brendan also has a turbulent personal life.

Nate is a very talented young striker for Dudley City in his 20s. Nate is described as self-aware, introspective, and dubious.

The third character described is Danni, a young reporter in her 20s-30s who is trying to establish herself in her field which is very male dominated.

Based on Brendan being described as a manager and Nate as a striker it seems like this could be a series in some way related to soccer or football depending on where you are from, although that is purely speculation at this point.  

Netflix wins the day.

Briefs : Game of Thrones, Dune 2, Green Hornet, Thor, Buck Rogers & more…

At least TV knows what to do with Michael Douglas!
