Newton To Lead Netflix Lost Esque Series

Kathryn Newton (“Blockers,” “Supernatural,” “Big Little Lies”) has scored the lead role in a new and untitled Netflix series dubbed “Lord of the Flies” meets “LOST”.

The story follows a group of young teens who arrive back from a school field trip to find that the population of the town is missing and they’re unable to escape. From there, the teens have to develop their own society as they attempt to find out what happened to the rest of the town.

The series is being executive produced by “The Amazing Spider-Man” helmer Marc Webb and “Party of Five” creator Chris Keyser with the latter serving as writer and the former as director. Filming is slated to begin in September ahead of a 2019 release.
