Netflix has ordered a supernatural thriller from the UK, an eight-episode series that will be produced by New Pictures, the British company that is part of Discovery- and Liberty Global-backed production group All3Media.

Netflix said that filming is underway in the UK and Norway on the as-yet-untitled series. It was written by Hania Elkington (“The North London Book of the Dead”) and Simon Duric, who was a storyboard artist on award-winning Netflix original “The Crown.”

Farren Blackburn (“Hammer of the Gods”) will direct six of the eight installments and executive produce alongside New Pictures’ Charlie Pattinson and Willow Grylls.

New Pictures made “The Missing” and “Indian Summers,” and is making upcoming BBC One and Netflix drama “Requiem,” and BBC and Cinemax scripted series “Rellik.”

Netflix is increasing the number of original shows from around the world, increasingly in association with local broadcasters. “The Crown,” from the UK., is its biggest-budget international production to date.
