If you are a fan of Netflix original programming, the streaming network has a new series that is coming and production has started. The new series is called Marco Polo and is a series not based on the summer time swimming pool game, but rather on the adventures of the explorer Marco Polo.
The show will have ten episodes for the first seasons and they will shoot in locations around the world. Shoot locations include Italy, Kazakhstan, and Pinewood Studios in Malaysia. The series will premiere in late 2014.
No exact premiere date has been announced at this time. The show follows Marco Polo as his journey takes him into the center of a war in China in the 13th century. The show sounds very exciting promising martial arts and spectacular battles.
"John, Dan, Joachim, Espen and our partners at The Weinstein Company are elevating the art of storytelling and delivering cinematic quality that we're certain our subscribers enjoy," said Ted Sarandos, Netflix Chief Content Officer. "In this commanding, epic story of Marco Polo, through the magnetic cast they've assembled, the spectacular martial arts work they are showcasing and the exotic locations that serve as a backdrop, they have really outdone themselves."
