Netflix has announced a new Polish Original Series “The Woods” based on Harlan Coben’s novel of the same name. Production has already begun on the six-part mystery series. Set in two time spans: 1994 and 2019 “The Woods” tells the story of a Warsaw prosecutor, Paweł Kopiński, who is still grieving the loss of his sister from twenty five years ago – the night she walked into the woods at a summer camp and was never seen again. But now, the discovery of a homicide victim – a boy who vanished along with Paweł’s sister – reveals evidence that links him to her disappearance. As hope rises that his sister could still be alive, dangerous secrets from his family’s past threaten to tear apart everything that Paweł has been trying to hold together.
Netflix entered an overall deal with the bestselling novelist Harlan Coben to bring a number of his novels to Netflix in the form of both English-language and foreign-language series as well as films. Coben has previously worked with Netflix for the series “Safe” and there are 14 projects that will be developed for the streaming giant including his upcoming novel “Run Away” and “The Stranger” which is currently in production.
