Netflix has released the first teaser trailer for the upcoming dramatic teen series, Grand Army. The series is based on Katie Cappiello‘s play, Slut, and it stars Odessa A’zion, Odley Jean, Maliq Johnson, Amalia Yoo, and Amir Bageria as students at Grand Army High School.
The drama series tells the story of five high school students as they struggle with sexual, racial and economic politics and fight to succeed and become somebody. The show is inspired by Cappiello’s work as a teacher.
The show’s logline says:
“Grand Army tunnels into a generation that’s raging and rising. Five students at the largest public high school in Brooklyn take on our chaotic world as they fight to succeed, survive, wild out, break free and seize the future.”
This looks like a really heavy series, but I am sure it is representative of how difficult it is to be a teenager in these times. Check out the teaser for Grand Army below, and watch the show when it premieres on Netflix with nine hour-long episodes on October 16, 2020.
