Teens Risk Their Lives in a Illegal High-Stakes Game in New Amazon Series PANIC


Amazon is trying to up their content game and so they’re making a new show based on Lauren Oliver’s best-seller, Panic. To direct the show, Amazon has recruited Leigh Janiak who will also serve as executive producer. Oliver is set to write the pilot and also be an executive producer. Here’s a synopsis of the book:

Panic centers on a forgotten rural town where every year the graduating seniors risk their lives in an illegal, high-stakes game to win life-changing money–and a chance to escape. Anonymous judges force the players through a series of challenges that will compel them to confront their deepest fears – and upend their ideas of who they are, who to trust, and who they might become. This year, 47 players will compete for the biggest pot ever. All of them will be changed. Only one will win.

It almost sounds like a twist on The Hunger Games. Are you interested in trying Panic out when it gets to Amazon? Have you read the book?

In addition to Janiak and Oliver, Joe Roth, Jeff Kirschenbaum, and Elle Triedman will serve as executive producers with Alyssa Altman and Lynley Bird serving as co-executive producers.
