Netflix just dropped the first images of The House, a quirky dark comedy anthology series produced by freelance stop-motion hosts Emma de Swaef, Marc Roels, Niki Lindroth von Bahr, and Paloma Baeza. Produced by BAFTA-winning Nexus Studios (This way up, Back to The Moon), the show centers on a house and three surreal stories of the people who made it their home. The show will air on the streamer on January 14, 2022.
The anthology is told in 3 parts:
Story 1 – Impoverished Raymond meets a mysterious benefactor who promises to restore him and his family to their former status. Families quickly learn that wants and desires may not always get you where you expect them to be. (Directed by Roels & de Swaef).
Story 2 – In the present, a harassed real estate developer tries to sell a renovation quickly. However, some weird and unexpected guests have other plans and become the catalyst for a more personal transformation. (Directed by von Bahr).
Story 3 – Located in the near future, the house survives a deeply altered landscape. We meet Rosa, a young owner determined to stay in her beloved ruined house and restore it to its former glory. But Rosa’s unrealistic outlook has blinded her to the inevitable change to come and what matters most. (Directed by Baeza).
