After the BBC chose not to produce the second season of teen drama, Netflix is going it alone on The A-List.
The 13-part first season of The A-List was commissioned for the streaming service iPlayer of the BBC, created by Lionsgate-Backed Kindle Entertainment. It premiered on iPlayer in October of last year before being picked up in July 2019 by Netflix, with the U.S. streamer delivering the drama internationally except in the UK.
Nina Metivier, who co-created and wrote The A-List with Dan Berlinka, told Deadline that the BBC has since withdrawn from the show and is now producing a second season for Netflix exclusively.
“Netflix picked it up for the world, and now they’re looking at a second series,” she said in an interview after being named one of the 10 British TV authors to be seen by Deadline in 2020. The 13-part first season of The A Record was commissioned for the streaming service iPlayer of the BBC, produced by Lionsgate-Backed Kindle Leisure. It debuted on iPlayer in October last year 12 months earlier than Netflix picked up in July 2019, with the U.S. streamer delivering the show internationally in addition to the UK.
Brief About First Season:
The first season of the A-List centered around Mia, played by Lisa Ambalavanar, who arrives at an idyllic summer camp expecting to be Queen Bee. Still, her lifetime holiday becomes a nightmare with the arrival of the mysterious Amber, played by Safe’s Ellie Duckles. Netflix goes it alone on The A Record after the teenager’s second season was determined by the BBC in opposition.
Shot on the western coast of Scotland, the show features psychological suspense and adolescent deception themes. The first season was produced by Anne Brogan’s executive of Kindle Entertainment. “Netflix picked it up for the world, and now they’re looking at a second collection,” she said in an interview after being named one of the 10 British TV authors from Deadline to watch this upcoming year.”
