Netflix has ordered the six-part Danish supernatural thriller series “Equinox” based on the well-known podcast ‘Equinox 1985’. Created by Tea Lindeburg, the story takes place in Denmark and follows a woman named Anna who was traumatized by the mysterious disappearance of a school class in 1999, when she was 10.

Twenty years later, Anna sets off to discover what happened to the class when she finds out that the only survivor from 1999 mysteriously died. The character-driven series toggles between 1999 and the present time. The series is set to start shooting later this year. [Source: THR]
