Development News - Willa Fitzgerald, Herizen Guardiola and Marlo Kelly to Star in USA Drama Pilot 'Dare Me'

Development News - July 25, 2018

USA's Dare Me.

  • Willa Fitzgerald, Herizen Guardiola and Marlo Kelly will star in the drama pilot written by Megan Abbott. Fitzgerald starred for two seasons in MTV's Scream and in the PBS miniseries Little Women. Guardiola starred in Netflix's one-season drama The Get Down. Kelly played the lead role in the Australian drama Patricia Moore.
  • Fitzgerald will Collette French, once a star cheerleader herself and now a rising-star high school cheerleading coach with a reputation for building winning squads. Young, beautiful and charismatic, she exudes a deep, enigmatic movie-star cool, but she can't stop herself from taking risks, with the squad and in her personal life.
  • Guardiola will play Addy Hanlon, a yearning, ambitious high school student who dreams of using cheer to secure a college scholarship and a ticket out of her Midwestern town. When Collette arrives, Addy is both inspired and tantalized, finding herself increasingly drawn into Collette's complicated world.
  • Kelly will play Beth Cassidy, a perfect pixie cheerleader on the outside, but on the inside a rebel who knows no limits. Her best friend Addy is the only person she truly cares about, the only one she's ever been able to trust. But the more Addy seems in thrall to Collette, the more determined Beth is to bring their coach down and win Addy back, at all costs.
