Dare Me Exclusive Sneak Peek: Meet Coach French

These high school alphas are no match for their new cheerleading coach.

by | December 11, 2019 | Comments

Meet Coach Colette French (Willa Fitzgerald): unwanted, uncompromising, unbelievable! With a tagline of “It was beautiful until it went to far,” USA Network’s new drama is based on Megan Abbott’s novel about competitive high school cheerleading. The arrival of French tears at the bond between best friends Addy Hanlon (Herizen Guardiola) and Beth Cassidy (Marlo Kelly).

About the show: 

Dare Me is an unflinching exploration of teen angst, jealousy, loyalty and the dynamics of power in a small Midwestern town. Peering behind the all-American facade, the series dives into the cutthroat world of competitive high school cheerleading. It follows the fraught relationship between two best friends (Herizen Guardiola and Marlo Kelly) after a new coach (Willa Fitzgerald) arrives to bring their team to prominence. While the girls’ friendship is put to the test, their young lives are changed forever when a shocking crime rocks their quiet rust belt town. Part coming-of-age story, part sport drama, part murder mystery, DARE ME exposes the physical and psychological extremes that some young women are willing to endure in order to get ahead.

The series stars Willa Fitzgerald (The Goldfinch), Herizen Guardiola (The Get Down), Marlo Kelly (Home & Away), Paul Fitzgerald (Younger), Zach Roerig (The Vampire Diaries), Rob Heaps (Imposters) and Alison Thornton (Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce). Chris Zylka (The Leftovers), Taveeta Szymanowicz (October Faction), Tammy Blanchard (Tallulah), Antonio J. Bell (Greenleaf) and Amanda Brugel (The Handmaid’s Tale) recur.

Dare Me is produced by UCP in association with Film 44. The series is based on the novel by Megan Abbott, who serves as writer and executive producer along with Gina Fattore, Peter Berg and Michael Lombardo of Film 44, Sarah Condon, and Karen Rosenfelt.

Dare Me premieres on Sunday, December 29 at 10/9C on USA Network.
