The first season of the program follows a group of high school students who are being targeted by an unknown killer. The cast includes Willa Fitzgerald (Alpha House), John Karna, Connor Weil (Sharknado), Carlson Young and Amadeus Serafini.

Jill Blotevogel (Harper’s Island) serves as the series’  executive producer and showrunner on season one she also rewrote the original script by Jay Beattie and Dan Dworkin. Wes Craven was also credited as additional executive producer.
