We love a good coming of age story, and Ginny & Georgia looks like a good one. What’s it about?
Angsty and awkward fifteen year old Ginny Miller (Antonia Gentry) often feels she doesn’t measure up to her thirty year old mother, the irresistible and dynamic Georgia Miller (Brianne Howey). Growing up on the move, Georgia desperately wants to put down roots in picturesque New England and give her family something they’ve never had… a normal life. But it’s not all carpool and Kombucha as Georgia’s past follows them to threaten her and her family’s fresh start.
Sounds good right? Well the trailer was released, and we’re even more convinced that it’s going to be a great one.
“We wanted to make a grounded show with real teenagers, real emotions, and honesty. Fifteen-year-old girls go through a lot. Like, a hell of a lot. Something we talked about a lot in the writers’ room is that everyone is fighting a battle that you can’t see. And although our characters are flawed we treat them with compassion, which is something the world needs more of right now. We weren’t really interested in labeling our characters “right” and “wrong” or passing judgement on them, but instead wanted to explore their gray areas.” creator Sarah Lampert said in a statement.
The show stars Brianne Howey (The Passage) as “Georgia,” Antonia Gentry (Candy Jar) as “Ginny,” Diesel La Torraca (Little Monsters) as “Austin,” Jennifer Robertson (Schitt’s Creek) as “Ellen,” Felix Mallard (Happy Together) as “Marcus,” Sara Waisglass (Degrassi: Next Class) as “Maxine,” Scott Porter (Friday Night Lights) as “Mayor Paul Randolph” and Raymond Ablack (Narcos) as “Joe”.
