'One Day In December': Lucy Boynton To Star In Drake Doremus' New Netflix Romantic Drama Series

It appears that acclaimed filmmaker Drake Doremus is set to make his debut on the TV side of things with a new series coming to Netflix, “One Day in December.” And he has a great leading lady already signed up for the job.

According to Deadline, Drake Doremus is set to write, direct, and executive produce “One Day in December,” a new romantic drama series coming to Netflix. And the series is set to star Lucy Boynton, who is also going to executive produce alongside Joel Stillerman. The series is based on the novel of the same name by author Josie Silver

The story follows a woman who doesn’t believe in love at first sight until one day she’s on a bus and sees the man of her dreams out of her window. Unfortunately, the bus drives off and she has no other information about the man. This leads to a year-long search and the shocking discovery that someone she is close with knows her dream man personally. The project is being developed as a limited series. However, according to the report, if the first season is a success, we could see another story as a follow-up.

Doremus is no stranger to romantic dramas. That’s basically his wheelhouse as a filmmaker. So, it’s not all that shocking that this is the story he wants to tell on TV. His previous film work includes his breakout feature, “Douchebag,” as well as subsequent films such as “Like Crazy,” “Equals,” “Zoe,” and his most recent, “Endings, Beginnings.” 

Boynton is probably best known for her role in “Bohemian Rhapsody.” She’s also appeared in films such as “Sing Street,” “Murder on the Orient Express,” “Apostle,” and most recently, “The Pale Blue Eye.”

It’s unclear when we might see “One Day in December” arrive on Netflix, but given how well romance-fueled films and TV series do on the streamer, this could be a huge hit for the studio. 

Here’s the scene from Doremus’ most recent film:
