Jason Momoa has signed up for a Netflix drama series. The “Game of Thrones” star will be seen in “Frontier.” The new Netflix series will run for six episodes. It will show the struggle of power in 18th Century North America. Multiple perspectives of the struggle and fur trade will be shown in the new drama.
The description of “Frontier” says, “The series takes place in a world where business negotiations might be resolved with close-quarter hatchet fights, and where delicate relations between Native tribes and Europeans can spark bloody conflicts.”
Mamoa was also seen in Sundance’s “The Red Road” and he will be seen as Aquaman in future DC movies. Jason Momoa is not the only inclusion for the series, though. He will work alongside Alun Armstrong, Zoe Boyle, Landon Liboiron, Allan Hawco and Jessica Matten.
Erik Barmack, Netflix local originals vice president, mentioned in a statement, “We jumped at the opportunity to bring this action-packed series to our global viewers,” adding, “The creative team behind the series has a very exciting vision for Jason and the show, and we’re thrilled to be working with Discovery Canada on getting a vast, worldwide audience to enjoy it.”
The new “Netflix” series in question will debut in 2016. This is for the U.S. audience, as Canada may get to see it much later. It will first air in Discovery Canada for Canadian viewers. Discovery Canada is producing the series, and the drama will be shot in Canada. Brad Peyton will be the executive producer of the show.
