“There’s something dangerous about the boredom of teenaged girls … ” begins the ominous trailer for USA Network’s explosive new drama series, Dare Me, hitting USA Network December 29 at 10/9c.
Based on the bestselling novel by Megan Abbott, Dare Me explores the competitive – and vicious – world of high school cheerleading, and all the associated teen angst, jealousy and power dynamics. The series sees a fragile friendship between two best friends (Herizen Guardiola and Marlo Kelly) begin to crack after a new coach (Willa Fitzgerald) arrives on the scene.
Part coming-of-age story and part murder mystery, Dare Me is produced by Peter Berg (Friday Night Lights) and Michael Lombardo, and executive produced by Sarah Condon and Karen Rosenfelt. Academy Award-nominated director Steph Green directed and executive-produced the pilot.
