The 10-part mini-series produced by Lime Pictures will become available to stream on Netflix from Friday 23rd June.
FREE REIN is created and written by Anna McCleery and Vicki Lutas. The series tackles the complex issues faced by young people and marks the first original children’s drama that Netflix have commissioned out of the UK.
The story centres on American teenager Zoe, and her summer of intrigue in the English countryside.
During her stay at Bright Field Stables, 15-year-old Zoe’s life changes forever when she meets the mysterious horse Raven, whose friendship gives Zoe the strength to deal with issues and explore new relationships.
Faced with personal and physical challenges at every turn, Zoe’s inspirational journey will show audiences that life is all about failing – and learning to pick yourself up again.
Anna has previously written for CBBC’s Secret Life of Boys, BBC Two’s The Cut and Channel 4’s hit soap Hollyoaks. She currently has projects in active development with Channel 4, Newman Street and CBBC.
