Most of Netflix’s original series have made a tremendous splash with critics and fans alike, from the soon-to-return ‘House of Cards‘ to fan favorite ‘Orange is the New Black,’ but will that same sense of direction follow ‘Marco Polo?’ The streaming network has placed an official order for their next high-profile drama, dubbed “a kinetic tale of high politics, masterful manipulation and deadly warfare among clashing empires,” and currently set for a late 2014 release.

Consisting of nine hour-long episodes, Netflix’s ‘Marco Polo’ sees the famed explorer’s journey taking him to the center of a brutal war in 13th century China, “a world replete with astonishing martial arts, sexual intrigue, political skullduggery and spectacular battles.” Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg will direct, with John Fusco and Dan Minahan (‘Game of Thrones‘) on board to executive produce.

“John Fusco and his team have created a timeless tale of power, adventure, betrayal and lust that combines deft storytelling and cinematic ambition,” said Ted Sarandos, Netflix Chief Content Officer. “It is a fantastic addition to our slate of original series, both because of its quality and because it is the kind of gripping action-adventure that Netflix members love.”

A bit hard to imagine without any major names attached, but what say you? Are you interested to see what Netflix comes up with for its latest original series?
