Coming soon: ‘Russian Doll’ on Netflix, starring Natasha Lyonne

Natasha Lyonne, our favourite Orange is the New Black star, is back with a new Netflix series for us to sink our teeth into! The redhead leads in dark comedy drama Russian Doll, a new eight-part series that kicks off on Netflix from Friday 1 February 2019.

Russian Doll is all about Nadia (played by Lyonne), a game developer who is trapped in an endless time loop, reliving her 36th birthday party and subsequent death, over and over again.

You’d be right in thinking that it looks to be part computer game, part Groundhog Day, which is said to be semi-autobiographical on Lyonne’s part, who co-created the series alongside Amy Poehler and Leslye Headland.

Lyonne told NY Times: “There’s probably a bit of a misconception around how key the deaths are. It’s more an emotional story of bottoming out.”

Check out the trailer below and catch the entire series on Netflix from tomorrow!
