Los Angeles, Dec 17 (PTI) Actor Emily Beecham has been roped in to feature in Netflix's anticipated European series '1899'.

The show hails from German writer-director-producers Baran Bo Odar and Jantje Friese, creators of the streamer's hit supernatural series 'Dark', reported Deadline.

The new drama will revolve around a migrant steamship heading from London to New York. When the passengers discover another migrant boat adrift, their journey descends into a horrifying nightmare.

The eight-episode show will be multilingual but primarily in English.

Beecham, who won Cannes Best Actress 2019 award for 'Little Joe', is the first name aboard for the lavishly-mounted period horror series.

'1899' is expected to go on floors from spring next year.
