Disney+ is looking to establish their own Stranger Things-esque series with the sci-fi teen drama, “Parallels.”
“Parallels” tells the story of four friends — Bilal, Romane, Samuel and Victor — whose lives are turned upside down when a mysterious event scatters the group into different timelines. The four teenagers will do all they can to understand what has happened and try to get back to the carefree innocence of their former lives.
The series is headlined by teenagers and features many fresh faces, including Thomas Chomel (“Clem”), Omar Mebrouk (“HPI,” “Les Invisibles”), Jules Houplain (“HPI”), Jade Pedri (“Ils étaient dix”), Naidra Ayadi (“Polisse,” “Black Spot,” “Stillwater”) and Guillaume Labbé (“The Hookup Plan,” “Je te promets,” “L’Ecole de la vie”). Other cast members include Gil Alma (“César Wagner”), Elise Diamant (“Mensonges”), Dimitri Storoge (“Validé,” “La Révolution”), Agnès Miguras (“ASKIP”), Maxime Bergeron (“Fantasies,” “ASKIP”), Victoria Eber (“Beyond Appearances”) and Timoté Rigault.
“Parallels,” a suspenseful sci-fi adventure series with a touch of comedy, will be one of the first French productions to air on Disney Plus, in France and in all other Disney Plus markets,” said Pauline Dauvin, VP of programming, production and acquisitions at The Walt Disney Company France.
All six episodes of “Parallels” hit Disney+ on March 23rd.
