Netflix dropped the teaser for “I-Land,” its upcoming “mind-bending limited series event” starring Natalie Martinez and Kate Bosworth on Tuesday, showing us what the I-Land is all about. And guys, this sci-fi show appears to be what would happen if you combined Fyre Festival, the plot of “Lost” and a slasher movie.
The video, which you can view above, starts off as pretty much a shot-for-shot remake of the infamous promo for the fraudulent “luxury music festival” founded by Billy McFarland and Ja Rule, with bikini-clad women prancing around the I-Land as title cards flash across the screen that read, “An immersive experience so exclusive, captivating and breathtaking… once you arrive, you’ll never leave.” And then all hell breaks loose.
Along with Bosworth, “I-Land” stars Natalie Martinez, Alex Pettyfer, Ronald Peet, Kyle Schmid, Kota Eberhardt, Sibylla Deen, Anthony Lee Medina, Gilles Geary and Michelle Veintimilla.
Here’s the official description for the seven-episode limited series, which launches Sept. 12:
When ten people wake up on a treacherous island with no memory of who they are or how they got there, they set off on a trek to try to get back home. They soon discover this world is not as it seems. Faced with the I-Land’s extreme psychological and physical challenges, they must rise to their better selves — or die as their worst ones.
“I-Land” launches Sept. 12 on Netflix.
