Rebecca Sonnenshine (The Vampire Diaries, The Boys) will write the new Netflix series, which is loosely based on found footage supernatural horror podcast Archive 81. James Wan, the writer behind Aquaman and Saw, all produce under the Atomic Monster production company.

The eight-part series will star Mamoudou Athie and Dina Shihabi. Stranger Things director Rebecca Thomas will direct half the series and executive produce the project.

Here’s the longline from Deadline, “When archivist Dan Turner (Athie) takes a mysterious job restoring a collection of damaged videotapes from 1994, he finds himself reconstructing the work of documentary filmmaker Melody Pendras (Shihabi) and her investigation into a dangerous cult. As Dan is drawn into Melody’s story, he becomes convinced he can save her from the terrifying end she met 25 years ago.”

Sonnenshine described the show, “With Archive 81, we’re hoping to give the supernatural horror genre a new twist — while keeping a dark, deeply emotional romance as its core. Alongside the talented Mamoudou Athie and Dina Shihabi, and visionary partners Atomic Monster and Rebecca Thomas, I’m excited to take Netflix viewers on a terrifying and visually thrilling adventure.”
