The new drama depicts modern-day adolescence as an unfiltered foray into drugs, alcohol, digital porn, and depression.
It is a jarring exploration into the dark gamuts of growing up with addiction, depression, and immense peer pressure among other coming-of-age obstacles.
The students at the center of this show live in an ordinary American suburb where social media, dating apps, and texting dictate their lives. They are thrust into adulthood while still discovering their sexual identities, coping with loss, and shedding inner childhood demons.
