The upcoming series, created by writer Ripley Parker, follows the life of 16-year-old Mia, played by Sophie Wilde, known for A24’s acclaimed horror film Talk to Me. She returns to sixth form after a seven-month period recovering from anorexia. Mia finds things have changed immensely with her friends, her enemies, and her general state of adolescence — and she’s now along for the ride. With an ever-changing personal bucket list, Mia has to adapt, explore, and ultimately find what she really wants.
