Netflix Creates Peter & Eric’s ‘American Primeval’ Series

  • Netflix has announced a new limited series called American Primeval.
  • Film 44 and Grand Electric are collaborating on the project.
  • Collaboration with Armando Salas as director of photography.

Two creators with global deals are eagerly awaiting their next project with Netflix, a new limited series called American Primeval.

Details of the new series are scarce, although two sources say filming will begin in New Mexico, US as early as February 2023.

Here is a description of the upcoming series, which is currently in production:

“Traveling west with her son, Sara joins a Mormon caravan headed in the same direction, but a bloody conflict erupts between the Native Americans and those claiming the land for themselves.”

Rachel Tenner is the casting director for the upcoming show. Armando Salas will act as cinematographer and cinematographer.

Film 44 (directed by Peter Berg) and Grand Electric are collaborating on the project (directed by Eric Newman).

The two have overall deals with Netflix and collaborated on the upcoming limited series Painkiller.

The series will be directed by Peter Berg, with Eric Newman producing.

Berg signed a deal with Netflix through Film 44 in March 2021 to develop and direct new films and series for the streaming service. It has only provided Spenser Confidential so far. This agreement is due to expire in early 2023 after three years.

Berg is also the pilot director of the limited series Pain Killer and an executive producer of the canceled series The Green Beret’s Guide to Surviving the Apocalypse.

Eric Newman has worked on a number of Netflix projects through Grand Electric over the years, with more on the way. He signed his contract in 2020, and it is set to expire at the end of this year.

Other Netflix projects mentioned by Newman include Rebel Moon, Griselda and The Upper World.
