Netflix has acquired global rights outside Australia to sci-fi thriller The Unlisted, being produced by Aquarius Films’ Angie Fielder and Polly Staniford. The 15-part half-hour series created by Justine Flynn, who is serving as executive producer and directs two episodes, follows the story of 12-year-old identical twins, Dru and Kal Sharma, who work with a group of underground vigilante kids to stop powerful governments from imposing global control over the world’s youth.
Here’s the official synopsis of the series, “Twelve-year-old identical twins Dru and Kal discover that the government is secretly tracking and manipulating Australia’s youth via electronic tracking devices. Together with a group of underground vigilante kids – The Unlisted – they must stop the evil authorities from creating an army of young soldiers who can be manipulated to serve the wealthiest citizens.”
