Netflix shared the first trailer from the new series
Netflix has released the trailer for its new series Fakes. The series features Emilija Baranac, whom we know from ‘Riverdale’, Jennifer Tong, the lead role of ‘DC’s Legends of Tomorrow’ production, and ‘The 100’ actor Richard Harmon. Being young is hard. There’s high school, oppressive families and, of course, adolescence. The feeling of harmony is an absolutely overwhelming and all-consuming feeling. This feeling can lead to making more than dubious decisions. This is also the case with Netflix’s new series Fakes.
In the first trailer released, we see how the two teenagers are willing to go to the top of their high school to be the best, but realize they’ve made a big and possibly serious mistake. In the trailer, we meet Zoe Christensen (Emilija Baranac) and Rebecca Li (Jennifer Tong), two childhood friends who just finished the school year. Breaking the fourth wall, the duo shares their peaks and inevitable collapses towards the bottom with the audience. In a side hustle that begins as a way to grab some booze for the next weekend party, the two start scanning fake IDs for themselves and a few of their peers. When it turns out they could live a life of luxury if they started their business on a larger scale, the two dive into new ventures without realizing the dangerous personalities they’ll encounter along the way. Things really start to heat up when they realize that it’s not just the feds that are about to knock down their doors.
Created by David Turko (Warrior Nun), the series also features Richard Harmon (The 100), Mya Lowe (Undercover Cheerleader), Devon Slack (The Handmaid’s Tale), Cameron Andres (Dead Shack), Oliver Rice (Chesapeake Shores), Debbie Podowski (Love Hard) and Toby Hargrave (The Twilight Zone 2019). Turko also serves as showrunner along with Tabia Lau in the series. Simon of Reality Distortion Field Barry and Stephen Hegyes join the production as both executive producer and executive producer.
Barry and Hegyes was joined by Lilly Burns and Tony Hernandez of Jax Media. If the trailer tells us anything, it’s Inventing Anna robbery-centric projects such as WeCrashed Fans of miserable origin stories like The Summer I Turned Pretty and young adult productions like The Summer I Turned Pretty will enjoy the mix of teen friendship and crime at the heart of the new series. The ten-episode series will premiere on Netflix on September 2.
