[via press release from Netflix]

NETFLIX ANNOUNCES THE CAST FOR "INTO THE NIGHT"

Netflix's first Belgian original series, Into the Night, has started filming. The series will feature an international cast from Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Russia, and Turkey.

Into the Night begins with a sudden solar event, as the sun inexplicably starts killing everything in its path. The show centers around the 'lucky' passengers and crew of an overnight flight out of Brussels, as they attempt to fly west - into the safety of the dark night. The plane's manifest is multinational and multilingual, with passengers, rich and poor, young and old, civilian and military. The seemingly ordinary travelers share but one thing: A desire to survive the sun - and each other - by any means necessary.

The cast of Into the Night also includes Yassine Fadel, Laura Sepul and Nicolas Aleshine. The series will be directed by Belgian duo Inti Calfat and Dirk Verheye (Over Water) and produced by Entre Chien et Loup. Jason George (The Protector, Narcos) is the creator and writer of the series and will serve as showrunner and executive producer. Other executive producers include Tomek Baginski (The Witcher, The Cathedral) and Jacek Dukaj.

The series will launch globally on Netflix in 2020.
