Hemlock Grove Trailer: The Mysteries of Mortality

hemlock groveNetflix has released the first trailer for Hemlock Grove, one of its upcoming original series. Along with the reunion of Arrested Development, an adaptation of BBC miniseries House of Cards, and the next comedy from Ricky Gervais, Hemlock Grove will attempt to establish Netflix as a player in the increasingly crowded world of scripted TV for its 13 episodes, releasing in April. Aside from the directorial skills of Eli Roth (Hostel), what will the show be offering the cavalcade of Netflix subscribers later in 2013?

Hemlock Grove takes place in a small industrial town where the body of a young girl is found outside a former steel mill. When there looks to be no sign of a killer being caught by the local police, two of the main suspects team up to try to clear their names, but it’ll take a lot for anyone to believe either is innocent of the crime. Will they round up enough evidence to bring down the real killer or will one of them be pinned for the murder before they have the chance?

Hemlock Grove stars Famke Janssen (X-Men) as Olivia, the grand dame of Hemlock Grove; Bill Skarsgard (Simple Simon) as Olivia’ s arrogant son Roman; and Landon Liboiron (Terra Nova) as Peter, a gypsy from the wrong side of the tracks. The show will also feature the likes of Aaron Douglas (Battlestar Galactica), Freya Tingley (X: Night of Vengeance), Penelope Mitchell (6 Plots), Kandyse McClure (Battlestar Galactica), and Dougray Scott (Desperate Housewives).

All 13 episodes of Hemlock Grove will be released Friday, April 19th on Netflix. The show is based on the novel of the same name by Brian McGreevey, who created and developed the series and will pen multiple episodes.

Will you be watching Hemlock Grove when it premieres on Netflix? If so, how will you watch the episodes – in a marathon or spread out? Did the trailer make you any more interested in the project?
