Peacock has handed out a straight-to-series order for the coming-of-age thriller “Hysteria!”. In the series, a beloved varsity quarterback disappears during the ‘Satanic Panic’ of the late 1980s.
A struggling high school heavy metal band of outcasts realize they can capitalize on the town’s sudden interest in the occult by building a reputation as a Satanic metal band. Things change when a bizarre series of murders, kidnappings, and reported ‘supernatural activity’ triggers a leather-studded witch hunt that leads directly back to them.
The series hails from writer and executive producer Matthew Kane while Chris Bender and Jake Weiner. “Game Night” duo John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein will direct and executive produce.
