Andreas Lemos, vice president of North America sales and acquisitions for Banijay Rights had this to say:
“With Hulu as our U.S. broadcast partners for this much-buzzed-about, genre-busting show, we will have a prestigious and accessible platform for American audiences to discover one of the most original series of recent times, melding classic sci-fi, horror and noir elements into a wildly entertaining hybrid.”
It tells the story of Juda, a gambler who borrows money from the Mafia to gamble in Romania. He ends up getting robbed and then is bitten by a seductive vampire, who winds up on her own path to mortality because she has unwittingly broken a rule of her ancestors by drinking Jewish blood.
