“We hope it will spark some interesting conversations about how our society can turn someone’s life upside down and send them to hell of shame before and sometimes in spite of the facts!”

Adds producer Jessica Biel, “We read the first episode and couldn’t stop thinking about the nonlinear storytelling.

“At first you think this could be a girl-on-girl story. However, what really matters is a difference in perspective. It is your truth against someone else’s truth. “

The reviews for the show have been glowing.

Cruel Summer currently holds a 90% rating for Rotten tomatoes with critics.

The consensus is, “While it’s a little too busy, Cruel Summer’s delicious twists and turns are always entertaining of its young stars.”
