These are news that can give cold sweat to historians. Netflix has just announced that it was preparing a fantastic series on the Revolution in 1789. The latter will be based on a scenario by Aurelien Molas, a young writer who specializes in thrillers who had already illustrated for Arte with the mini series "Maroni, the Ghosts in the River".
Produced by the French production company John Doe, the show will tell us an alternative version of the event. Achieved by a mysterious virus called "The Blue Blood," the aristocracy turns to the people and begins to attack. Joseph Guillotin, the whole of the series, will be responsible for investigating this strange epidemic that affects the country.
If the name tells you something, it's because it's directly inspired by Joseph Ignace Guillotine. This French doctor and politician is not the inventor of the guillotine, but is known for having adopted it during the revolution as the only mode of execution.
Between adaptations of Roald Dahl's work and the announcement of a live version of the cult Cowboy Bebop saga, Netflix is currently on all fronts. On the other hand, this vision may not convince Mr. Mélenchon!
