If you wonder why every superhero and ancient being comes to the UK or the US, the new Netflix web series The Protector plans to be your answer. Set in Istanbul, The Protector is about a young man with supernatural powers who must fight ancient beings to save his city – Istanbul. Much like how Batman has to look after Gotham and Superman has his Metropolis.
Binnur Karaevli creates this series, which stars Cagatay Ulusoy, Ayca Aysin Turan, Mehmet Kurtulus and others. As is usual nowadays, multiple directors helm this project. Umut Aral, Gonenc Uyanik, Can Evrenol and Gokhan Tiryaki direct multiple episodes. The trailer promises an action packed, high concept series, with a script that will profit a lot from the production values that Netflix is known for.
Netflix has been committed to bringing international cinema to mainstream audiences since a while. It has earlier brought several web series and films to Netflix audiences that are in international languages.
