Netflix has ordered a 10-episode series of a new sci-fi series “The One” from Howard Overman (“Misfits”). The series is based on the science fiction novel of the same name by John Marrs and is being made by Urban Myth Films who brought us “Atlantis” and “Crazy Head”.
The One is set five minutes in the future, in a world where a DNA test can find your perfect partner – the one person you’re genetically predisposed to fall passionately in love with. No matter how good your relationship, which one of us can honestly say we haven’t thought about whether there is someone better out there? What if a hair sample is all it takes to find them? The idea is simple, but the implications are explosive. We will never think of love and relationships in the same way again.
