Ready for a wine-soaked sex romp in the Italian countryside? Netflix has set July 25 for the premiere of The Decameron, Netflix‘s soapy period dramedy from Teenage Bounty Hunters creator Kathleen Jordan and Orange is the New Black creator Jenji Kohan. The streamer also released a teaser for the series which you can view above.

Tony Hale, Zosia Mamet and Saoirse-Monica Jackson star in the dark comedy, which is set in the year 1348 when the Black Death strikes hard in the city of Florence, and a handful of nobles retreat with their servants to a grand villa to wait out the plague with a lavish holiday. But as social rules wear thin, a scramble for survival ensues, brought to life by a cast of characters both cunning and outrageous. 

Cast also includes Amar Chadha-Patel, Leila Farzad, Lou Gala, Karan Gill, Douggie McMeekin, Jessica Plummer and Tanya Reynolds.

Series is created by Jordan, who also serves as showrunner. She executive produces with Kohan, Blake McCormick and Tara Herrmann for Tilted Productions. Michael Uppendahl (Fargo, American Crime Story) directs four of the eight episodes.
