Netflix has developed yet another sci-fi series titled The Imperfects, which is eyeing a global September 2022 release on the service. The series will star Designated Survivor‘s Italia Ricci and will be developed by Nomadic Pictures, who also developed The Order, Wu Assassins, and The I-Land for Netflix.
Dennis Heaton and Shelley Eriksen are the duo behind the series. The pair, who previously created The Order for Netflix (sadly canceled after a short-run on the service), are also behind the scripts and the executive producers.
Emmy winner Mathias Herndl will be among the directors. Herndl is known for his work on projects like The Order, Genius, Warrior Nun, and more.
Chad Oakes and Mike Frislev will also produce along with Heaton and Eriksen for Nomadic Pictures.
