Netflix has released a trailer for the its original series completely shot in Colombia, a supernatural crime-mystery known as Green Frontier, which focuses on ritualistic murders deep in the heart of the South American jungle.

The series premieres August 16 and from the one-minute trailer, it's clear the series evokes shades of HBO's True Detective. It'll focus on a detective, Helena (Juana del Río), investigating a spate of killings tied to a prehistoric indigenous race called the Eternals, as well as surprisingly, the Nazis.

The clip, with its gorgeous shots of lush Colombia, highlights some of the victims, with nods to the occult and the mystical practices linked to Helena's journey as she uncovers shocking secrets tied to her own lineage. As for the Eternals, we see them wielding weapons and acting aggressively in the past, hinting Helena's journey will rely heavily on these flashbacks as she tries to solve her cases.

The official synopsis reads:

Deep in the Amazon, on the border between Brazil and Colombia, a series of bizarre deaths are investigated by a young Bogotá-based detective, Helena (Juana del Río). Soon it becomes clear that the murders are not the biggest mystery. She uncovers magic, Nazis and her own true origins, and soon discovers there are some secrets that are better kept in the jungle.
