New series Brand New Cherry Flavor drops August 13th on Netflix, with Rose Salazar as aspiring film director Lisa Nova in 1990s Los Angeles who embarks on a journey of supernatural revenge.
Brand New Cherry Flavor filmed in Vancouver in the Fall of 2019 and Winter of 2020 with additional photography last November in Los Angeles.
A filmmaker heads to Hollywood in the early ‘90s to make her movie but tumbles down a hallucinatory rabbit hole of sex, magic, revenge – and kittens.
Cast: Rose Salazar, Catherine Keener, Eric Lange, Jeff Ward, Manny Jacinto.
In the world of Hollywood’s panderers, philanderers, has-beens, and sycophants, aspiring screenwriter and director Lisa Nova considers herself a rising star who can transcend the lies, cheating, and hypocrisy for the sake of her art. When she is coldly betrayed by one leering producer too many, she turns to Boro, the enigmatic leader of a local biker gang, to exact vengeance—and she gets more than she bargained for. It begins with the strange tattoos that appear overnight on her skin like stigmata, followed by the hallucinations of ancient cults of the undead. Lisa soon finds herself contending with white jaguars and cannibalistic demons rising from the grave, and the lines between dreams and reality quickly dissolve in this surreal and exhilarating blend of satire and the macabre.
Writer/producers: Nick Antosca and Lenore Zion.
Producers: Eat the Cat, Universal Content Production.
