Calling all Netflix Lifers! Netflix has just given the green light on a new limited series titled Black Rabbit, and guess who's in front and behind the camera for it? Golden Globe Award-winning actor Jason Bateman! Joining him is Academy nominee Jude Law. With these two creatives part of the series, we can already tell it's going to be one worth checking out.

Black Rabbit is being described as a one-hour drama series, meaning each episode will be about an hour long. Law and Bateman are set to star as well as executive produce. Bateman and Michael Costigan will be executive producing through Aggregate Films. This will be another project out of Aggregate's multi-year overall deal with Netflix. In addition, Law and Ben Jackson executive produce for Riff Raff Entertainment, and Zach Baylin and Kate Susman for Youngblood Pictures. Andrew Hinderaker, Zac Frognowski, Justin Levy, and David Bernon are also signed on as executive producers.

It's a series that's been in development since October 2022. Academy Award-nominated screenwriter Zach Baylin and Kate Susman are writing the scripts based on an original idea of theirs. They're also the creators and showrunners of Black Rabbit. Additionally, Bateman will not only be starring and executive producing but also directing the first two episodes.

He and Law will be playing brothers who are the complete opposite in the drama series. While Law will be playing a more business-minded type of guy, Bateman will be playing his character's troubled brother. Unfortunately, all character names are undisclosed at the moment, but we'll be sure to share them once they're known. Joining Law and Bateman in the cast are other actors such as Cleopatra Coleman, Amaka Okafor, Ṣọpẹ́ Dìrísù, and Dagmara Dominczyk.

Here's the show's official logline via Netflix:

"When the owner of a New York City hotspot allows his turbulent brother back in his life, he opens the door to escalating dangers that threaten to bring down everything he's built."

Although Black Rabbit is being considered a drama series, it'll most likely have comedic elements to it. I mean, Bateman adds laughter to almost any movie or show he is in. We'll be surprised if he doesn't for this series.

According to What's on Netflix, production is to start on April 15, 2024, and run to Sept. 25, 2024. However, it's important to mention that Netflix nor the creative team behind the show has confirmed this production schedule. So, we'll have to take it with a grain of salt. Once we have the official production schedule, we'll make sure to share it.

That's all we know about Black Rabbit for now. Make sure to constantly check this space because we'll be updating it with new information about the drama series as it's revealed.
