The Breakfast Club with fatal consequences? Talk about a deadly detention.
Based on Karen M. McManus' novel of the same name, five students—an athlete, an academic whiz, a "princess," a criminal and a "basket case"—enter detention...but only four of them live to tale the tale.
"Everyone is a suspect, and everyone has something to hide," a statement per the NBCU streaming service teased.
The multi-perspective story is narrated by the ill-fated Simon (Mark McKenna), as the Rojas sisters, brainy Bronwyn (Marianly Tejada) and her younger sidekick Maeve (Melissa Collazo), try to solve the murder. Bad boy Nate (Cooper van Grootel), popular Queen Bee Addy (Annalisa Cochrane) and jock Cooper (Chibuikem Uche) are also all tangled up in the mysterious conspiracy surrounding the detention-based death.
Could it have to do with the high school gossip app he started?
Add in break-ups, love triangles and plenty of personal secrets to uncover, and it's clear that maybe more than just one of them is lying.
