Frontier comes from creators Rob Blackie and Peter Blackie, and will be helmed by Brad Peyton, the director of 2015’s San Andreas. The three will also executive produce, along with Jeff Fierson, Alex Patrick, and John Vatcher. The series is being produced by Take the Shot Productions and Factory Backwards, in association with Discovery and Netflix. Frontier was commissioned by Discovery Canada and will be the channel’s first original scripted series when it airs.

Viewers in Canada will have to wait for the show to air on Discovery before it becomes available on Netflix in 2018. For subscribers outside the country, however, Frontier will premiere exclusively on the streamer in 2016.
