Netflix is Releasing a Horror Series Based On The Fyre Fest Fiasco

Kate Bosworth and Natalie Martinez in "The I-Land"

Earlier this year, Netflix dropped FYRE: The Greatest Party That Never Happened on the streaming platform. The documentary told the story of how hundreds of influencers jetted off to an island in Barbados for a music festival, only to be met with torrential rain, not enough tents, and no music.

Now, the streaming giants are releasing The I-Land, which will tell a similar story but in the form of a horror series. A group of attractive young people will show up on an island for a music festival, only for things to drastically go downhill very quickly.

The official synopsis reads: “When 10 people wake up on a treacherous island with no memory of who they are or how they got there, they set off on a trek to try to get back home.

“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.”
