Based on the New York Times bestselling memoir by Grammy-nominated Platinum recording artists Tegan and Sara, High School is a coming-of-age scripted series that has been greenlit at IMDb TV. The series is from Amazon Studios and Plan B Entertainment.
IMDb TV describes its upcoming series as centering around first loves, first songs, and “…finding your own identity — a journey made even more complicated when you have a twin whose own struggle and self-discovery so closely mimics your own. Told through a backdrop of 90s grunge and rave culture, the series weaves between parallel and discordant memories of twin sisters growing up down the hall from one another.”
Clea DuVall (Happiest Season), along with Tegan and Sara Quin, will executive produce. DuVall will also write and direct multiple episodes of the series. She co-created, executive produces, and voices the character of Elsa in FOX’s new comedy series Housebroken. She is known for her on-camera roles in The Handmaid’s Tale, Veep, Argo, and numerous other movies and TV series.
In a press release, Tegan and Sara said, “We are incredibly excited to be working with Lauren, Ryan, and the fantastic IMDb TV team to bring High School to life and apologize in advance to our mother for forcing her to relive this period of time with us again. We’ve made casting suggestions on her behalf to the incomparable Clea DuVall and our wonderful partners at Plan B.”
High School will stream exclusively on IMDb TV, Amazon’s premium free streaming service.
