MIPBlog spoke to Eli Roth (notably director of Hostel horror films) and actress Famke Janssen (Goldeneye, The X-Men, Nip/Tuck) about Hemlock Grove, the latest Netflix original series.

Roth describes the werewolf-focused series as “Twin Peaks, but with a whole monstrous spin on it.” Roth also explained how Netflix’s interest in Roth was data-driven: “they have all this data, like views of the Hostel films, which mean I have a high Netflix rating.” The other advantage of going with the streaming platform? “I could really approach it like a 13-hour movie,” said Roth.

For Janssen, “the combination of Gaumont and Netflix, and then the material itself, plus a character I could really get my teeth into,” summed up the project’s appeal to her from the outset.
