Based on Julie Orringer’s historical fiction novel The Flight Portfolio, Transatlantic features an international cast that includes Gillian Jacobs (Community), Lucas Englander (Parlement), Cory Michael Smith (Gotham), Gregory Montel (Call My Agent!), Ralph Amoussou (Missions), Deleila Piasko (Agent Hamilton), Amit Rahav (Unorthodox), and Corey Stoll (Billions).

The English-, German-, and French-language series is inspired by the true story of Harvard-educated journalist Varian Fry, American heiress Mary Jayne Gold, and members of the Emergency Rescue Committee.

Set in Marseille between 1940 and 1941, it follows Fry and other like-minded individuals in the French port city as they form and run the Emergency Rescue Committee — risking their lives to help more than 2,000 refugees escape occupied France, including many artists on the Nazis’ most-wanted list. This international gang of young superheroes and their famous charges occupy a villa at the edge of the city, where the threat of mortal danger gives way to unexpected collaborations and intense love affairs.

Transatlantic, a Netflix Series, premieres globally on Friday, April 7, exclusively on Netflix. (You can set a reminder for it now.)

A production of Airlift Productions, the series is produced by Airlift’s Anna Winger and Camille McCurry, with Winger serving as showrunner, and Stéphanie Chuat (My Little Sister) and Véronique Reymond (The Little Bedroom) serving as lead directors.
