YouTube Red Plans “Edge of Seventeen” Series

Streaming subscription service YouTube Red has given a pilot-production commitment to a TV series spin-off of the Hailee Steinfeld-led 2016 coming of age comedy “Edge of Seventeen”.

A new cast will be assembled for the story which follows a high school student and her best friend as they navigate the relationships, feelings and realities of being a teenage girl. The aim of the series is to “subvert standard teen show tropes”.

Annabel Oakes (“Transparent”) will pen the script for the potential TV series while the film’s writer/director Kelly Fremon Craig is attached to executive produce.
