Amazon Reveals ‘Panic’ Adaptation Premiere Date (TV News Roundup)

Amazon revealed that the upcoming young adult series “Panic” will premiere on May 28.

Written and created by Lauren Oliver’s bestselling novel, the 10-episode series takes place in a small Texas town where every summer, the graduating seniors compete in a series of winner-takes-all challenges that they believe is their only chance to escape their circumstances and make their lives better. This year, the rules have changed — the pot of money is larger than ever and the game has become even more dangerous. Players will come face to face with their deepest, darkest fears and be forced to decide how much they are willing to risk in order to win.

“Panic” is executive produced by Joe Roth, Jeff Kirschenbaum and Adam Schroeder. Lynley Bird and Alyssa Altman serve as co-executive producers.

Also in today’s TV news roundup, Netflix announced that “Selena: The Series” will launch its second season on May 4, more than a week earlier than originally scheduled. The two-part series looks back at the life of Selena Quintanilla (Christian Serratos) before she became the Queen of Tejano and includes an exploration of her path to stardom. Part 2 is set up for the rise of beloved Selena track “Como La Flor” and the growing presence of Yolanda Saldivar (Natasha Perez), the fan club president who murdered the singer on the precipice of her 24th birthday. She died just months before the release of her crossover album, “Dreaming of You.” “Selena: The Series” is written by Moises Zamora, who also serves as executive producer alongside Jaime Dávila, Rico Martinez, Suzette Quintanilla and Simran A. Singh. Watch a teaser for “Selena: The Series” Part 2 below.
