Amazon Freevee Unveils Trailer, Premiere Date for ‘High School’; Coming-Of-Age Drama Based On Best-Selling Memoir
Amazon Freevee has released the first trailer for High School, an eight-episode coming-of-age drama based on the New York Times best-selling memoir of the same name from Tegan and Sara Quin. The first four episodes of High School will premiere Oct. 14, with new episodes available every Friday on Amazon Freevee (formerly IMDb TV).
Produced by Amazon Studios and Plan B Entertainment, High School is a story about finding your own identity—a journey made even more complicated when you have a twin whose own struggle and self-discovery so closely mimic 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.
High School will make its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival this September.
The series stars TikTok creators Railey and Seazynn Gilliland in their TV debut as the high school versions of Tegan and Sara, respectively. Special guest stars Cobie Smulders (How I Met Your Mother) and Kyle Bornheimer (Marriage Story) play the twins’ parents, Simone Bates and Patrick Twiley. Esther McGregor is also a series regular as Natalie.
The cast also includes Olivia Rouyre as Phoebe, Amanda Fix as Maya, Brianne Tju (I Know What You Did Last Summer) as Ali, Geena Meszaros (Under the Banner of Heaven) as Lily, CJ Valleroy (NCIS: Los Angeles) as Evan, and Nate Corddry (For All Mankind) as David.
High School is executive produced by Clea DuVall, Tegan and Sara Quin, Laura Kittrell, and Plan B’s Dede Gardner, Jeremy Kleiner, and Carina Sposato. DuVall and Kittrell also serve as co-showrunners and co-writers. DuVall directs several episodes.
