Megan Abbott’s Dare Me gets a full series, Netflix to handle global distribution

We’re keeping an eye on Megan Abbott’s adaptation of her own novel, Dare Me, and news reaches us today that USA Network has ordered a full series. Not only that, but viewers outside of the US will be able to watch it on Netflix.

Variety says:

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.

Additional series regulars include Rob Heaps, Zach Roerig, and Paul Fitzgerald. Joyful Drake, Tammy Blanchard, Antonio J. Bell, and Alison Thornton are also set to recur.

If the novel is anything to go by, this one is well worth looking out for.
