Per Deadline, USA orders full series of Dare Me, which was one of it’s four pilots ordered back in April of last year. The show, which is based on the novel by Megan Abbott, follows teens dynamic lives in a Midwestern town:
Peering behind the all-American facade, Dare Me dives into the cutthroat world of competitive high school cheerleading. It follows the fraught relationship between two best friends (Guardiola and Kelly) after a new coach (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 show will be co-produced by Netflix who will have the international rights for the series.
