Ten - PREMIERES SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 16 AT 8PM ET/PT
Based on the teen horror novel by Gretchen McNeil, Ten is the story of a weekend retreat gone wrong. When an exclusive invitation arrives for a house PARTY ON an island for ten teenagers with no parents, Meg (China Anne McClain, DESCENDANTS 2) ignores her doubts and decides to go with her best friend Minnie. But when a storm leaves them stuck on the remote island, Meg finds herself navigating frenemies, former crushes, and fools while coming face-to-face with her past and her future. But when each of the teens starts to die off, one by one, Meg must solve the connection between herself and the other guests, none of which may be as innocent as they seem.
Ten is produced by Rainmaker Films and is executive produced, directed and written by Chris Robert.
Drink, Slay, Love - PREMIERES SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 16 AT 10PM ET/PT
Pearl is a typical sixteen-year-old vampire. Fond of blood, allergic to the sun, and generally pretty evil. But after a mysterious attack leaves her able to survive in the daylight, everything changes. Pearl's powerful family soon finds a way to take advantage of her new ability: they send Pearl to high school, to gather fresh young blood for an upcoming feast in honor of the Vampire King. The only problem is that Pearl is starting to grow a conscience. How can she serve up her new friends -- especially the cute guy who makes her fangs ache -- to be slaughtered? Then again, she's definitely dead if she lets her family down. What's a sun-loving vamp to do?
Cierra Ramirez and Gregg Sulkin star in the film. Drink, Slay, Love is produced by Just Singer Entertainment / Sepia Films / Honalee Entertainment. Sheri Singer executive produces; Bella Thorne is a producer. Vanessa Parise serves as director, and Eirene Donohue as a writer.
Sea Change - PREMIERES SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 17 AT 8PM ET/PT
Sea Change, a supernatural drama based on the YA novel by New York Times bestselling author, Aimee Friedman, follows Miranda Merchant (newcomer Emily Rudd) a teen girl on a journey to reunite with her estranged mother Amelia (Maria Dizzia, Orange is the New Black), who lives on a seemingly idyllic island off the coast of New England after the death of her father. As Miranda settles into island life, she finds herself torn between TJ (Keenan Tracey, Supernatural), heir to one of the oldest Selkie families, and mysterious bad boy Leo (Skyler Maxon, Faking It) who is part of the working class "townies." When Miranda learns about the Seawalkers, who, according to local legend, are half human and half sea creature, she begins to believe that they could be real. As she uncovers more about her family's past, Miranda makes a startling discovery about her own connections to the Seawalkers.
Sea Change is written by Liz Sczudlo (The Following, Awkward) and produced by MarVista Entertainment and Piller/Segan. Executive producers are Fernando Szew, Sharon Bordas, Lloyd Segan, Shawn Piller and David MacLeod.
