Who is Eleven, exactly? That's the question asked in a special sneak peek at Netflix's new series Stranger Things. Creators, writers and directors Matt Duffer and Ross Duffer gather to introduce this mysterious young girl. And we get to learn more about her role in this exciting new supernatural drama. Here's what the duo have to say about Eleven.
"When we meet Eleven, she is just this strange girl. Her hair is buzzed, and she is wearing a hospital gown. She is dirty. And we have no idea who she is. There is this wondrous thing with her. She has these special abilities. She's scary, because we don't exactly know what she is capable of. There's also this fear that she can do these things with her mind. What can she do to me?"
Set in Hawkins Indiana in the 1980s, Stranger Things chronicles the search for a young boy by his mother (Winona Ryder) who opens an investigation. A love letter to the supernatural classics of the 80's, the boy has vanished into thin air. As friends, family and local police search for answers, they are drawn into an extraordinary mystery involving top-secret government experiments, terrifying supernatural forces and one very strange little girl. Stranger Things stars Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Millie Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Noah Schnapp, Natalia Dyer, Cara Buono, Charlie Heaton, and Matthew Modine.

And they are executive producers along with Shawn Levy and Dan Cohen via their 21 Laps entertainment banner (The Spectacular Now, Night At The Museum, Real Steel, Date Night). Shawn Levy also serves as director. Stranger Things is a Netflix original series.
