Dare Me is an American drama TV series based on Megan Abbott’s acclaimed novel of the same name. The series was picked up in late January 2019 and it premiered on December 29, 2019. Megan Abbott serves as writer and executive producer along with Gina Fattore (“Dawson’s Creek,” “Gilmore Girls,” “Californication”). Peter Berg (“Friday Night Lights”) and Michael Lombardo of Film 44, Sarah Condon and Karen Rosenfelt executive produce. Netflix will co-produce and have first-run rights to the series outside of the U.S.
The series is a fearless exploration of teen angst, jealousy, loyalty and the dynamics of power in a small Midwestern town. It peers behind the all-American facade and dives into the cutthroat world of competitive high school cheerleading.
Dare Me follows the relationship between two best friends (Herizen Guardiola and Marlo Kelly) after a new coach (Willa Fitzgerald) arrives to bring their team to prominence. While the girls’ friendship is put to the test, their young lives are changed forever when a shocking crime rocks their quiet suburban world.
This new TV series is part coming-of-age story, part small-town drama, and part murder mystery. It exposes the physical and psychological extremes that some young women are willing to endure in order to get ahead.

Fitzgerald is an American actress best known for her lead role as Emma Duval in MTV’s Scream.
