Oh, this sounds FUN. It’s a new 10-episode series on USA, starting October 16. The premise: Two teenage boys secretly hook up at a cabin in the woods when they are interrupted by a shocking multiple murder. They have to stay quiet so that nobody discovers they’re gay. Meanwhile, a local sheriff, played by Julianne Nicholson, is hot on the case.
I first read about this over on BoyCulture, and have to agree this is one of those things I never thought I’d live to see. A TV series predicated on a gay teen hookup. I would have just lost my shit at age 14 to have something like that around. What a great time to be alive.
Watch the creepy and atmospheric trailer below.
I think I’m already in love with Tyler Young (who plays Philip)!
When two innocent teenaged boys secretly meet up in the forest, they bear witness to a shooting and barely escape with their lives. Desperate to keep their relationship a secret and in fear of being found by the perpetrator, they remain silent but soon learn that what has been seen cannot be unseen and when you witness a horrible event it changes everything, forever.
The original version of the series was produced in Norway by NRK Drama and premiered last year. Norwegian actress Anneke von der Lippe, who plays a police investigator on the NRK series, was recently honored for her role with a Best Performance by an Actress win at the International Emmys.
