Kathryn Newton has been tapped to star in a new Netflix drama series written by Chris Keyser (Tyrant, The Last Tycoon) and directed by Marc Webb (The Amazing Spiderman franchise, 500 Days of Summer).

Described as a modern take on Lord of the Flies, the untitled Chris Keyser drama follows a group of teenagers who are mysteriously transported to a facsimile of their wealthy New England town, left without any trace of their parents. As they struggle to figure out what has happened to them and how to get home, they must establish order and form alliances if they want to survive.

These teens will party, panic, grieve, fight, and ultimately have to decide how to deal with the unthinkable all under the lead of Allie, played by Newton. Allie, is at the center of leading this mysterious teenage world although always living in her older sister, Kim’s shadow. Allie inspires her sister to take charge of the group and supports her during the ensuing confrontation.

Webb and Keyser are set as executive producers. Production is set to get underway in September outside of Boston.
