The eight-episode Wayward is a thriller set in a bucolic but sinister town that explores the insidious underbelly of the “troubled teen industry” and the eternal struggle between one generation and the next.

Topliffe and Lind are playing best friends Abbie and Leila; Adams plays a high school counselor, I hear.

Martin serves as co-showrunner with Ryan Scott, who also is an executive producer. Ben Farrell executive produces through his Objective Fiction, along with Hannah Mackay, Jennifer Kawaja and Bruno Dubé. Sphere Media is producing.
