Besides the Kevin Spacey and David Fincher-produced political drama "House of Cards," there's another big-time original series that will be debuting this year exclusively on Netflix. It's called "Hemlock Grove," and it's an hour-long horror series that's being produced by genre maestro Eli Roth (who also directs the pilot). Netflix has just released the debut trailer, giving us a first look at the series that stars Famke Janssen, Landon Liboiron, Bill Skarsgard, Dougray Scott and Lili Taylor.
Based on Brian McGreevy's supernatural novel, the show is set in a fictional Pennsylvania town where the unsolved murder of a young girl (who's rumored to have been killed by a werewolf) sets off a couple of local boys (Liboiron and Skarsgard) to investigate in the city's darkest corners, exposing a couple of nefarious residents and troubled family members (Scott, Janssen and Taylor).
Netflix will start streaming all 13 "Hemlock" episodes on April 19th.
