When a group of teens returns home from a trip that is cut short, they come back to find that everyone in the town is missing and there isn’t a way to get out of there. Naturally, the teens will first celebrate in their freedom which slowly transforms into grief and panic as time goes on.

The group is led by Newton’s character, Allie, who has spent her life living in the shadows of her older sister, Kim. Allie will be the one to convince her sister to take charge of the unfortunate situation and helps her when the inevitable confrontation in the story arrives.

Webb and Kayser are also executive producers for the series which will begin production in September just outside of Boston.
