Netflix introduces The Imperfects

Netflix
The new Nomadic Pictures sci-fi series sees former WGC president Dennis Heaton (The Order) serve as showrunner, executive producer and writer.

Netflix is getting supernatural with Dennis Heaton and Nomadic Pictures again.

The streamer has commissioned The Imperfects, a new sci-fi series from the Calgary-based prodco and former WGC president who stepped down from the post last week citing an “increasing professional workload.”

The 10-episode drama follows three twentysomethings who are turned into monsters after taking part in experimental gene therapy. Working together, they try to hunt down the scientist responsible to try to become human again.

Created by Heaton and Shelley Eriksen, the series sees Heaton serve as showrunner, executive producer and writer, while Eriksen serves as writer and executive producer.

Alongside Heaton and Eriksen, executive producers include Nomadic Pictures co-chairmen Chad Oakes and Michael Frislev.

Filming in Vancouver, The Imperfects stars Italia Ricci (Designated Survivor), Morgan Taylor Campbell (Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist), Rhianna Jagpal (To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before 3), Iñaki Godoy (Who Killed Sara?), Rhys Nicholson (RuPaul’s Drag Race Downunder), Celina Martin (Other Kingdom) and Kyra Zagorsky (The 100).

Netflix has taken a liking to the combination of Heaton, Nomadic and Eriksen in the past. The streamer previously commissioned sci-fi drama The Order, which ran for two seasons and was also shot in Vancouver.

As well, Heaton previously worked on Nomadic-produced supernatural series Ghost Wars, which ran for one season on U.S. network Syfy and internationally on Netflix.

Nomadic’s other Netflix credits include The I-Land, Wu Assassins and Van Helsing (Syfy/Netflix), which returns for its fifth and final season tomorrow (April 16) on Syfy.
