Everyone over 21 dies in new Netflix series Between

With all the excitement over Daredevil and Netflix's other Marvel series, it's worth noting that the streaming network has some other interesting offerings coming up.

A trailer has been released for the new original series Between, which takes place in a town where a mysterious disease has exterminated everyone over the age of 21. Now, that sounds right there like the basis for yet another post-apocalyptic young adult movie or a CW pilot ... but the trailer makes the premise a lot more interesting and eerie.

Jennette McCurdy (iCarly) stars in the six-episode series, for which the official synopsis reads:

Between is the story of a town under siege from a mysterious disease that has wiped out everybody except those 21 years old and under. The series explores the power vacuum that results when a government has quarantined a 10-mile diameter area and left the inhabitants to fend for themselves. 

The one-hour program will be available for streaming on Netflix starting on Thursday, May 21, at 8:30 p.m. PT, with a new episode available for the next five Thursdays after that.

Watch the trailer below and sound off on whether you think Between will be worth a look.
