Beta Film and Red Bull Media House are launching high-end scripted project The Net. Inspired by true events, the ambitious series is planned as five standalone seasons of eight episodes each. It uses the world of soccer as a backdrop for the characters who experience the beautiful game not only as a dream factory, but also one of the largest organized crime enterprises in history. Based on a concept from Matthias Hartmann and Plinio Bachmann, the series aims to demonstrate a new avenue for international drama production whereby individual seasons can be watched alone or can be discovered as part of the 40-hour interwoven narrative. Each of the five seasons will be developed with local partners and produced in their respective home markets. Negotiations with producers and broadcasters are under way with shooting scheduled to commence in 2019/2020.
