    'Dare Me' Is Your New Teen Drama Obsession

    Based on the novel by Megan Abbott, a new coach arrives at a Midwestern school and and a battle for power in all forms begins.

    Good girl Addy (Herizen Guardiola) and cheer captain with a wild side Beth (Marlo Kelly) are our two teen friends whose journeys we follow.

    Addy dreams of leaving this small town and thinks cheerleading can help her get out and go to a good college.

    She works hard at practice, and works hard on homework, because she knows this is her one shot out this place.

    Beth is a party girl and is loving the power that comes from the top of the totem pole of the cheer squad.

    Her dad is big developer of the town who left her and her mother for the woman across the street after a long-standing affair that resulted in a daughter only a couple years younger than Beth. Scandal!

    In their relationship, Beth is the leader and Addy follows, sometimes enthusiastically, sometimes reluctantly.

    Their status quo is interrupted when they get a new coach, Colette French (Willa Fitzgerald), who doesn't care about who cheer captain is.

    Addy takes to Colette immediately and looks to her for advice and as a role model.

    They become confidantes quickly after a couple circumstances force them to keep a couple secrets, and they start sharing details of their lives.

    Beth, however, does not.

    She likes her power and Coach French doesn't care for it, preferring to think of what's best for the squad as a whole. And she especially doesn't like her when Addy starts to take a liking.

    And to top it all off, this town happens to be Colette's hometown where she continues her unfinished business with her high school sweetheart.

    She moved back with her husband and their daughter under the guise of it being a career opportunity for him in real estate, where it really was an enticement for Colette from Beth's dad the developer to improve the cheerleading squad and put the town on the map with a new stadium.

    And thus, the battle for power begins, and everyone and everything is up for grabs.
