Netflix to Explore the Future of Dating in a French Black Mirror-esque Series01.03.2019
"Osmosis" is a story of a mysterious dating app that lets its users find true love. The series was created by Audrey Fouché, former writer on the 2011-2014 series Borgia.
The series will be the second (after "Marseille") Netflix original to be produced in France. "Osmosis" is set in the Paris of the near future and focuses on a dating app that supposedly helps users find ideal partners. The series is a critique of the impact that cutting-edge technologies and software, and especially their personal data harvesting efforts, end up having on the everyday lives of their users.
It’s difficult to avoid comparing the French series to the Charlie Brooker’s wildly popular dystopian anthology series "Black Mirror", particularly the episode "Hang the DJ", which also explored dating apps and the intersection of love and technology.
"Osmosis" stars Hugo Becker, Agathe Bonitzer, and Lionel Lingelser, and is slated for international release on March 29.
