Netflix announces The OA part 2, continuing the mind-bending series
The series comes from Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij, the visionary filmmakers behind Sound of My Voice and The East, who have created a mind-bending tale about identity, human connection and the borders between life and death. The Netflix original series The OA is an odyssey in eight chapters produced in partnership with Plan B Entertainment, Netflix and Anonymous Content. The groundbreaking series offers audiences a singular experience that upends notions about what long-format stories can be.
Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner from Plan B (Oscar-winning producers of 12 Years a Slave) and Michael Sugar from Anonymous Content (HBO‘s True Detective, Cinemax‘s The Knick) are executive producers of the series, along with Marling and Batmanglij. The OA is a Netflix production.
Actor, writer and producer Brit Marling has starred in films including Arbitrage, and the recent I, Origins, and the Civil War western The Keeping Room. Her credits behind the scenes include The East and Sound of My Voice, which she produced and co-wrote with Batmanglij, as well as Another Earth, which she also produced and co-wrote with Mike Cahill. Director and writer Zal Batmaglij made a splash at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival with his feature debut Sound of My Voice, which was released by Fox Searchlight. The studio went on to make his next film The East, which they released in 2013.
