Netflix’ excruciatingly intense wilderness series Keep Breathing follows Manhattan lawyer Liv played by Melissa Barrera, who is en route to Inuvik, Northwest Territories. But suddenly, the small, unregistered plane crashes into a frigid mountain lake. Her fellow passengers die and she’s left alone, with no cell signal, thick forest as far as the eye can see, one bottle of water and a protein bar. Hang on, it gets better – no one knows she’s there. What She Said’ Anne Brodie spoke with co-writers and showrunners Brendan Gall and Martin Gerro about creating a female protagonist who knows one false move may kill her and Barrera who exhibited extraordinary courage.
Keep Breathing debuts on Netflix July 28th
