‘The Decameron’ From ‘Teenage Bounty Hunters’ Team In Development At Netflix

A new series from Tilted Productions is reportedly in development at Netflix, helmed by Jenji Kohan, Tara Herrmann and Blake McCormick. Kathleen Jordan is said to be on board to pen the project behind the Netflix comedy series, Teen bounty hunters.

Details are extremely thin, and it’s unclear if the show has received a series order at press time. The show is described as a period piece set in 1350 during the Black Death in the Italian countryside. The series will follow two groups that are described as a “high/low component” with characters swapping between the two groups throughout.

The show is described as similar to Netflix’s Bridgerton but “more cheeky and mocks himself”.

The Decameron itself is a collection of short stories by Giovanni Boccaccio containing 100 stories told by men and women as they shelter in a remote villa outside Florence. The stories take place over 10 days. The news has been mentioned frequently throughout the coronavirus pandemic.

As mentioned, Kathleen Jordan is set to write and produce the project behind Teen bounty hunters (unfortunately canceled after just one season) where she served as executive producer and showrunner. Jordan also worked on american princess and hack my life.

Tilted Productions is working on the show which last released Worn Stories on Netflix last year. This production company is run by Jenji Kohan and her longtime collaborators Tara Herrmann and Blake McCormick.

Titled is behind a number of shows on Netflix, but perhaps none match the heights of Orange is the new black. Jenji Kohan notably signed a global deal with Netflix almost 5 years ago in November 2017.

Some of their other projects for Netflix since ILONB East GLOW which was unfortunately cut short after 3 seasons, the aforesaid Teenage bounty killers which was canceled after just one season, Social distancing which lasted one season. Before Netlfix, the production company produced Weeds and american princess.

We will have more on The Decameron as we get it.
