Netflix has given a straight-to-series order for science fiction drama “The Imperfects”, which will follow three twenty-somethings who have to track down a group of scientists who administered an experimental gene therapy on them, which turned the trio into monsters. Now, they’re trying to find the scientists so that they can go back to being human and resume something like a normal life. The series comes from Shelley Eriksen and Dennis Heaton, who are also writing the series.
Actress Italia Ricci (“Designated Survivor”, “Supergirl”) is set to star as Dr. Sydney Burke, a gifted scientist who joins forces with Abbi Singh (Rhianna Jagpal, “To All The Boys”), Juan Ruiz (Iñaki Godoy, “Who Killed Sara?”), and Tilda Weber (Morgan Taylor Campbell, “Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist”) to help them reverse their fates in an effort to try and fix her own ethical and professional past mistakes.
Ten episodes of “The Imperfects” have been ordered.
