HBO Orders Euphoria Series Involving Drake And Zendaya

    HBO has officially ordered a new Zendaya-featured drama series, Euphoria.

    According to Shadow and Act, the series added Drake as an executive producer and many others including A Wrinkle in Time star Storm Reid.

    Euphoria is an adaption of an Israeli TV show with the same name.

    “HBO first announced the project in March, described as a teen drama and a story of ‘drugs, sex, identity, trauma, social media, love and friendship.’ The story is told by a lying, drug-addicted 17-year-old named Rue (Zendaya).”
