Eiza González is dealing with three (body) problems…
Netflix has released the first footage of its highly anticipated sci-fi epic 3 Body Problem, starring the 33-year-old Mexican actress and singer.
From David Benioff and D.B. Weiss — their first large-scale project at the streamer since signing a mega overall deal in 2019 — and Alexander Woo, the project is based on the book series by Cixin Liu.
The eight-episode drama, which recently wrapped production, will launch in January 2024.
Per Netflix’s logline for the sci-fi series, “A young woman’s fateful decision in 1960s China reverberates across space and time to a group of brilliant scientists in the present day. As the laws of nature unravel before their eyes, five former colleagues reunite to confront the greatest threat in humanity’s history.”
3 Body Problem stars Jess Hong, Benedict Wong, González, Jovan Adepo, Alex Sharp, John Bradley, Saamer Usmani, Liam Cunningham, Rosalind Chao, Jonathan Pryce, Marlo Kelly, Sea Shimooka, Ben Schnetzer and Zine Tseng.
Benioff, Weiss and Woo wrote the series and serve as showrunners.
The “3 Body Problem” premiere window news and teaser were revealed by cast members Hong, Wong, Adepo, Sharp and Bradley during Netflix’s live-streamed fan event TUDUM, which was hosted out of Brazil Saturday.
The show was one of several featured during the event, which Netflix took live for the first time this year.
