Luckily, HBO and A24 have released the first teaser for the show and it looks just as interested as we hoped.
The 30-second sneak peek gives us a glimpse of Zendaya as her character, “Rue,” described as a “lying, drug-addicted, 17-year-old” in the upcoming series that is based on an Israeli series of the same title.
The show also stars several young talents including Algee Smith, Austin Abrams, Nika King, Maude Apatow, Barbie Ferreira, Hunter Schafer and Sydney Sweeney. HBO described the project as a teen drama about “drugs, sex, identity, trauma, social media, love and friendship” and we are intrigued.
No word on what inspired Drizzy to jump into the production game but we’re excited to see how his first project as an executive producer turns out.
Check out the teaser below:
