The recording of a new Netflix series directed by Agnieszka Holland will start in Wrocław as early as next month.
The as yet untitled series will be set in 2002, but under an alternative reality where the communist regime are still in power.
During a promo interview with Netflix, acclaimed director Holland explained her desire to explore what would have had happened had Poland's history taken a different course. In her own words, she believes that "An alternative story gives us a real opportunity to explore some really deep questions in a very surprising and interesting manner for audiences."
Agnieszka Holland is of course no stranger to Netflix, having directed a few episodes of the hit drama House of Cards. She is also well known for the 2011 feature film In Darkness, which was nominated for an Oscar, as well as last year's Spoor, which won the Silver Bear award at the Berlin Film Festival.
The new series will be partially filmed in Wrocław, with shooting to begin on February 16th. The producers of the series are also looking for extras including people from Vietnam, Japan, Mongolia and Korea. Anyone who fancies taking part in the show can find more information via the Edwin Film Agency website.
The tv series will of course be in Polish and the first episode is expected to online before the end of the year.
