‘The I-Land’ Is a ‘Hunger Games’-Style Survival Simulation in First Trailer for Netflix Sci-Fi Series (Video)

Seven-episode limited series debuts Sept. 12

Netflix released the first trailer for its upcoming sci-fi series “The I-Land” on Thursday, revealing that I-Land is actually a high stakes simulation put on as some kind of survival test for its participants.

The seven-part limited series, starring Natalie Martinez and Kate Bosworth, envisions a “Hunger Games”-esque scenario where 10 people wake up on a treacherous island with no memory of who they are or how they got there.

Netflix’s official description of the show says, “They soon discover this world is not as it seems. Faced with the I-Land’s extreme psychological and physical challenges, they must rise to their better selves — or die as their worst ones.”

Alex Pettyfer, Ronald Peet, Kyle Schmid, Kota Eberhardt, Sibylla Deen, Anthony Lee Medina, Gilles Geary and Michelle Veintimilla also star in the series from creator Neil LaBute.

“The I-Land” will debut on the streamer on Sept. 12.
