Jake Manley (Heroes: Reborn, iZombie) has been tapped as the lead in the series, with Sarah Grey (Stargirl on DC’s Legends of Tomorrow) as the co-lead and Matt Frewer (Altered Carbon, Orphan Black), True Blood alum Sam Trammell and Max Martini (Training Day, Revenge) co-starring.
Created/written by Dennis Heaton (Motive) and Shelley Eriksen (co-creator of Private Eyes), The Order centers on college freshman Jack Morton (Manley), who joins a fabled secret society, The Order, where he is thrust into a world of magic, monsters and intrigue. As Jack goes deeper, he uncovers dark family secrets and an underground battle between werewolves and the magical dark arts.
Grey plays the female lead, Alyssa, a pretty and smart overachiever with a double major in poli-sci who is a member of The Order and is attracted to Jack.
The Order is described as a magical and terrifying journey to uncover our true selves — and the monsters that hide within. The series is executive produced by Heaton, Eriksen, Chad Oakes, Mike Frislev and David Von Ancken.
Netflix is already in business with Nomadic Pictures on another supernatural series, Ghost Wars, executive produced by Heaton. Netflix is the global distributor of the show, which airs on Syfy in the U.S.
The streaming giant also recently ordered vampire drama V-Wars starring Ian Somerhalder.
Manley is repped by ICM Partners, Ambition Talent and Luber Roklin. Grey is with RED Mgmt and Global Creative.
