it seems veteran actor Kevin Costner has fallen out of favor with Hollywood in recent years. That’s not to say Netflix hasn’t given him the chance to co-lead one of their latest original titles.

This won’t be the first French Netflix Original but it is our most anticipated. The sci-fi series will take us to Paris in the near future and basically expands on the Hang The DJ episode from Black Mirror season 4.
