Trailer



 

"There's something dangerous about the boredom of teenage girls" and that essentially captivates you to find out what is going on in this show. From the trailer, we can see that cheerleading is so much more than glitters, hair, and attitude. The plot unfolds with a dangerous event that probably took place, evidently as the cinematography runs into darkness and there is a gunshot. Perhaps, a murder, we guess. From the first look of it, it seems like this is a crime thriller show!
