About Grand Army
“The teen drama, adapted from the play “Slut” by Katie Cappiello, stars Odessa A’zion, Odley Jean, Maliq Johnson, Amalia Yoo, and Amir Bageria as students at Brooklyn’s largest public high school, Grand Army High School.”
“The show centers on the lives of these five young adults as they navigate coming-of-age in today’s messy America – think less “Gossip Girl”, and more “Euphoria” meets “Skins”, or “Degrassi” with a bit more edge.” (From Refinery29)
