Netflix & Agnieszka Holland Team For Polish-Language Cold War Thriller

The untitled eight-episode series will be shot in various cities and regions in Poland for launch in 2018. Set in a world where the Iron Curtain never fell, it’s 2002 — 20 years after a devastating terrorist attack halted the course of Poland’s liberation and the subsequent downfall of the Soviet Union. After two decades of peace and prosperity, the leaders of the regime enact a secret plan that was made with an unlikely adversary in the 1980s and will radically transform Poland, affecting the lives of every citizen in the nation — and the world. When an idealistic law student and a disgraced police investigator stumble upon the conspiracy, what they discover has the potential to ignite a popular revolution while those in power will stop at nothing to keep it a secret. – Nancy Tartaglione, Deadline Hollywood
