“The A List” are set for Netflix in the U.S. and around the world after the streamer picked up the U.K.-produced teen drama.
The supernatural thriller series is set in what appears to be an idyllic island summer camp. Mia, played by Lisa Ambalavanar, arrives there expecting the holiday of a lifetime, but the trip turns into a twisted nightmare with the arrival of the mysterious Amber (Ellie Duckles).
Kindle Entertainment produced the 13-part series, which bowed on the iPlayer, the catchup and on-demand service of U.K. pubcaster the BBC. It was written by Dan Berlinka and Nina Metivier (“Doctor Who”), and executive produced by Kindle’s Anne Brogan (“Hank Zipzer”).
“’The A List is an intense and powerfully addictive drama for teen audiences everywhere,” Brogan said. “Dan and Nina have created a dark and compelling world brought to life by incredible performances from the show’s incredible young cast. We’re thrilled that Netflix is introducing this haunting psychodrama to a global audience.”
Teen-skewing drama has fared well on Netflix and the “The Kissing Booth” was a breakout hit for the streamer.
