Netflix has dropped the official trailer for Heartbreak high, the upcoming teen comedy-drama series, which will be available to stream on September 14. The video follows Amerie as she becomes a social pariah at school after her sex card is exposed to the entire student body. After losing her best friend to this controversy, she finds friendship with outsiders Quinni and Darren.
Heartbreak high is an Australian coming-of-age reboot of the 1994 series of the same name. It was created and written by Hannah Caro Chapman, Ben Gannon and Michael Jenkins.
“Described as a high-octane adventure, the series delves into the minds and lives of a group of Australian teenagers,” reads the synopsis. “The discovery of a secret map that charts all the attachments of the school year makes its architect, Amerie (16, rebel, loud – The Heart), an instant pariah. In an attempt to correct the hypersexual students, the school forces them into a sexual literacy program.With her new outsider friends Quinni (neuro-divergent truth bomb – The Brains) and Darren (ambitious, super-dooper gay – The Clitoris), Amerie must repair her reputation while navigating love, sex and heartbreak.”
The eight-episode series stars Ayesha Madon, Jame Majoos, Chloe Hayden, Asher Yasbincek, Thomas Weatherall, Will McDonald, Josh Heuston, Sherry-Lee Watson, Brodie Townsend, Gemma Chua-Tran, Chika Ikogwe and Rachel House.
It is produced by Jenkins, Carly Heaton, Sarah Freeman, Brian Abel and Megan Palinkas. It is a FremantleMedia production.
