Netflix commissions Better Than Us

Netflix commissions TV series Better Than Us produced by Yellow, Black and White.

The show takes place in the future and tells the story of a robot called Arisa.

This is the first Russian project that will be shown under the Netflix Originals brand with local dubbing.

"Russian producers used to see international distribution as just a way of raising their image, but now it’s turning into a real business. The Netflix Original status means that the premiere will be heavily promoted, so we are sure that millions of viewers around the world will be able to watch Russian content," said the producer.

Better than Us was shown two years ago at the Series Mania festival. The sci-fi show has been winning an ever more international audience, and the rights to the show were recently sold in China. The series will be shown this year in Russia on Channel One, Russia’s most popular TV channel.
