Netflix is really jumping envelope first into the production game, having already set up deals to bring David Fincher and Kevin Spacey’s House of Cards, Jenji Kohan’s Orange is the New Black and more episodes of Arrested Development to the little screen. Now, according to Deadline Hemlock Grove, they’re close to securing a deal with Gaumont International Television to produce 13 hour-long episodes of Hemlock Grove, based on the novel of the same name by Brian McGreevy.

McGreevy will be involved as a writer (alongside writing partner Lee Shipman), but the biggest name attached is executive producer and director Eli Roth who would bring his baseball bat into the mix.

The story is focused on the murder of a young girl who is found ripped up near a steel mill and the two young men trying to solve it. Werewolves are inevitably involved. The big question is whether original programming will help save Netflix. If you’re considering dropping them, are shows like this enough to make you reconsider?
