marco-polo-netflix-usaSeveral American news sites report that Netflix is ready go on an adventure with Marco Polo, as Netflix have shown an interest in buying the rights to do a drama series about Marco Polo’s great expeditions.

Originally, it was the TV channel Starz who were interested in producing Marco Polo, but they dropped the series when they realized it wasn’t as easy to get permission to shoot in China as predicted. Therefore the series is now back in the hands of the production company The Weinstein Co., who now has to decide whether they want to make it into a movie instead or hand over the rights to Netflix. Netflix is reportedly ready to make the first 9 episodes of the series.

The Marco Polo series is created by John Fusco (Young Guns) and Dave Erikson (Sons of Anarchy) and is said to deal with the amazing journeys, treachery and Marco Polo’s relationship with Kublai Khan, who ruled the Mongol Empire. The series is told from young Marco Polo’s point of view – being at the center of a brutal war between two empires in the 13th century China.

If Netflix decides to do the series it would be added to their already impressive portfolio of original series, which include: House of Cards, Orange is the New Black, Hemlock Grove and the upcoming series Sense8 and Derek.
