There seems to be a recent trend of shows set in the 80’s… This one takes place in 1980, Montauk, New Jersey.  Montauk is known for its wineries, beaches and the “Montauk monster” that washed ashore there some years back.

The  Montauk story follows the search for a boy who seemed to vanish into thin airAfter the boy goes missing, the search for the boy uncovers secret government experiments and what seem to be supernatural forces at work. According to a Netflix press release, Netflix has ordered 8, hour long episodes for the first season. The show is being executive produced by Matt and Ross Duffer and will premiere on Netflix in 2016.
