Oct 18, 2018

Now that Spider-Man: Far From Home has seemingly wrapped up it’s filming it looks like it’s female lead Zendaya can focus on her upcoming pilot for the HBO teen drama series Euphoria.

The series is said to focus on sex, drugs, and teens. As HBO describes it being a mixture of Kids meets Trainspotting, meaning this will be likely darker than the usual teen dramas making the rounds.

Here’s the press release from HBO.

Drake, along with manager Future the Prince, will executive produce HBO’s Euphoria, a teen drama based on the Israeli series of the same name. Actor and singer Zendaya (K.C. Undercover, Spider-Man) will lead an ensemble cast that includes Sydney Sweeney (Sharp Objects, The Handmaid’s Tale), Maude Apatow (Girls, This Is 40) and Eric Dane (Grey’s Anatomy).

The story, which follows a group of high school students as they navigate drugs, sex, identity, trauma, social media, love and friendship, has been described as “Kids meet Trainspotting.”

Augustine Frizzell (Never Goin’ Back) will direct the pilot. All episodes will be written by Sam Levinson (The Wizard of Lies), who will also serve as executive producer.

Euphoria is produced in partnership with A24 (Lady Bird, Random Acts of Flyness, 2 Dope Queens) and includes executive producers Ravi Nandan, Kevin Turen, Hadas Mozes Lichtenstein, Tmira Yardeni, Mirit Toovi, Yoram Mokadi and Gary Lennon.
