USA Network is bringing Megan Abbott’s novel Dare Me to series and has unveiled the first trailer for the cheerleader drama.
Premiering December 29, Dare Me is set in a Midwestern small town and dives into the competitive world of high school cheerleading. An official synopsis of the show can be read below.
“Peering behind the all-American facade, the series dives into the cutthroat world of competitive high school cheerleading. It follows the fraught relationship between two best friends (Herizen Guardiola and Marlo Kelly) after a new coach (Willa Fitzgerald) arrives to bring their team to prominence.
While the girls’ friendship is put to the test, their young lives are changed forever when a shocking crime rocks their quiet suburban world. Part coming-of-age story, part small-town drama, part murder mystery, Dare Me exposes the physical and psychological extremes that some young women are willing to endure in order to get ahead.”
The trailer is certainly ominous and teases a deadly event taking place. While murder or perhaps an accident is teased, I’m glad the trailer doesn’t reveal too much. It is good to see Herizen Guardiola again, as I enjoyed her performance on Netflix’s The Get Down.
Check out the trailer below.
