Panic is coming to Amazon Prime this Friday. And though this is a YA adaptation, there’s no dystopia, this is set in our world, and it just features teens, well …doing stuff that isn’t that smart. On par for the course, you know?
In case you aren’t familiar with the source material, here’s the synopsis:
PANIC is a new Amazon Prime Video one-hour drama series, written and created by Lauren Oliver (based on her bestselling novel). It takes place in a small Texas town, where every summer the graduating seniors compete in a series of challenges, winner takes all, which they believe is their one and only chance to escape their circumstances and make their lives better. But this year, the rules have changed — the pot of money is larger than ever and the game has become even more dangerous. The players will come face to face with their deepest, darkest fears and be forced to decide how much they are willing to risk in order to win.
We had a chance to talk to Olivia Welch and Jessica Sula about the show, what drew them to the project and what thing they would absolutely not do. Check out our interview below:
Panic will be available to stream on Amazon Prime Friday, May 28th.
