‘Archive 81’ Boss Calls Netflix Twisty Drama a ‘Mystery Box Show’

VHS meets OMG in Storage 81, an eight-episode series home to videotape archivist Dan Turner (Mamoudou Athie), who has been hired to restore a series of damaged cassettes since 1994.

The story unfolds in different timelines: As Dan stitches the footage together to reveal how Melody Pendras the documentary went missing (Dina Shihabi) comes across a strange cult more than 25 years ago, he is also haunted by events from his own past that seem to replay in the present.

The characters’ shared relationships (and who hired Dan in the first place) are just a few of the tough spots, which is why executive producer Rebecca Sonnenshine (Diary of a vampire) described the film as “a mystery box performance.”

Her fusion of genres – including suspense and supernatural – is sure to keep viewers guessing as to what is fact or fiction until the very end…and maybe even after.
