Director Tim Burton is bringing Wednesday Addams to Netflix in a new live-action series. The new live-action coming-of-age comedy Wednesday will see everyone’s favorite maiden of the macabre graduate into a full-fledged leading lady.
Pitched by Al Gough and Miles Millar, Wednesday will be a fresh retelling of the iconic character. The upcoming eight-episode series is a sleuthing, supernaturally infused mystery charting Wednesday’s years as a student at the peculiar Nevermore Academy. Wednesday’s attempts to master her emerging psychic ability, thwart a monstrous killing spree that has terrorized the local town, and solve the supernatural mystery that embroiled her parents 25 years ago – all while navigating her new and very tangled relationships with the strange and diverse student body.
Burton —who is no stranger to telling stories about outsiders— will direct with a team that also includes Andrew Mittman for 1.21 (The Addams Family, Alphas), Kevin Miserocchi (Tee and Charles Addams Foundation), Kayla Alpert (Code Black, Up All Night), Jonathan Glickman for Glickmania (RESPECT, Addams Family 2), and Gail Berman (The Addams Family, Alphas).
