Zendaya Will Be Bringing Her Skills To HBO

The 22 year old usually has everyone gagging from the looks she serves, but this year Zendaya is serving up her acting abilities on a new HBO show, Euphoria. The former Disney star of shows Shake It Up & K.C. Undercover, will play the lead role in Euphoria. The show is described to be about teenagers in high school exploring their identity, drugs, sex, friendship, love and trauma. Maybe we can expect some Degrassi vibes because Drake is named as an executive producer for the show. He posted a teaser on his Twitter last summer. It featured Zendaya who looks tf good even when she looks fried from the drugs her character Rue partakes in.

Euphoria will be directed by a woman! Her name is Augustine Frizzle, director of independent film Never Goin Back. Shooting for the series has already begun although there is not a date set for when it will air. The show has been picked up for 10 episodes and features the lead star of Ava Duvernay's A Wrinkle In Time, Storm Reid. The rest of the cast includes: Jacob Elordi, Maude Apatow, Brian “Astro” Bradley, Angus Cloud, Eric Dane, Alexa Demie, Barbie Ferreira, Nika King, Hunter Schafer and Sydney Sweeney.

HBO delivered a promo that shows off there lineup for the year. A snippet of Euphoria is featured in the promo. You can watch it below.
