NEW DRAMA SERIES "FRONTIER" STARRING JASON MOMOA AND DIRECTED BY BRAD PEYTON COMING ONLY TO NETFLIX

Beverly Hills, Calif., November 16, 2015 -- Netflix, the world's leading internet TV network, announced that Frontier, a new action adventure drama series starring Jason Momoa (Game of Thrones, Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice) and from co-creators Rob Blackie (Republic of Doyle) and Peter Blackie (Majumder Manor) and director Brad Peyton (San Andreas, Incarnate, Journey 2: The Mysterious Island) will premiere exclusively on Netflix outside of Canada, everywhere the service is available, in 2016.

The first season of the drama series, commissioned by Discovery Canada, is made up of six, one-hour episodes. Frontier will debut on Discovery Canada in Canada and will come to Netflix Canada beginning in 2018.

The series is an action-packed adventure drama following the chaotic and violent struggle to control wealth and power in the North American fur trade in the late 18th century. Told from multiple perspectives, the series takes place in a world where business negotiations might be resolved with close-quarter hatchet fights, and where delicate relations between Native tribes and Europeans can spark bloody conflicts.

Alun Armstrong (New Tricks, Braveheart), Landon Liboiron (Hemlock Grove, Degrassi), Zoe Boyle (Downton Abbey, Sons of Anarchy) and Allan Hawco (Republic of Doyle, The Book of Negroes), and round out the international cast. The series also introduces Canadian newcomer, Jessica Matten.

"We jumped at the opportunity to bring this action-packed series to our global viewers" said Erik Barmack, Vice President of Local Originals at Netflix. "The creative team behind the series has a very exciting vision for Jason and the show, and we're thrilled to be working with Discovery Canada on getting a vast, worldwide audience to enjoy it."

"Frontier presents an outstanding opportunity for our company and we are thrilled to be in business with Netflix and Discovery on this exciting project," said Alex Patrick, President of Take the Shot.

Rob Blackie, Peter Blackie, Brad Peyton, Jeff Fierson (This is Not a Robbery), Alex Patrick (Republic of Doyle) and John Vatcher (Republic of Doyle) serve as executive producers on the series. The series is produced by Take The Shot Productions and Factory Backwards, in association with Discovery, the exclusive Canadian broadcaster, and Netflix.
