The adaptation — which could stream on Prime Video or Freevee — follows “two ruthless step-siblings who would go to great lengths to stay on top of the social pyramid. In this case, their focus is the Greek life hierarchy at an elite Washington, D.C. college. After a brutal hazing incident threatens the entire Panhellenic system, they’ll do anything to preserve their power and reputations, even attempt to seduce the daughter of the Vice President of the United States,” per the official description. Benanti was supposed to play the mother of Caroline (First Kill‘s Sarah Catherine Hook).

The main cast includes original film star Sean Patrick Thomas as Professor Chadwick, Zac Burgess (Totally Completely Fine) as Lucien, Brooke Lena Johnson (YOU) as Beatrice, Sara Silva (The Boys) as CeCe, John Harlan Kim (9-1-1) as Blaise and Myra Molloy (The Bold Type) as Annie.
