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.
