Isabelle Fuhrman just booked the lead role in YouTube’s upcoming Edge of Seventeen pilot.
THR reports that the 21-year-old actress, who you know from The Hunger Games, will star as Mira in the series.
Based off of the movie of the same name, the show would revolve around Mira, a high school student and her best friend, Lou (Liana Liberato), as they navigate the relationships, feelings and realities of being a teenage girl.
Mira is described as a whip-smart underachiever trying to survive high school until the moment she can escape her hometown and loving, but messy, family. Socially, she’s a floater, along with her best friend Lou. A clique of two. But when things start to shift in their friendship, Mira will have to search her world for other connections to help her endure her seemingly endless adolescence.
Lou (short for Louise) is a smart, dry, introverted and way overachieving. Her family is religious but lately Lou is having trouble reconciling her faith with her impulses. Still, while her older brother is rebelling, she feels pressure to be the “good kid.” Her only rebellion to date is being friends with the fun and impulsive Mira, who brings out a darker, funnier side of her that no one else knows.
No word on when the series would premiere on YouTube.
