The trailer for “Youth & Consequences,” an eight-episode teen drama/comedy, opens with star Anna Akana walking through the doorway of Ogden High and includes other scenes filmed in and around the school. The cast and crew for the web series filmed in Ogden, including on Historic 25th Street, in August and September 2017.
“In YOUTH & CONSEQUENCES, the new original series from YouTube Red, Anna Akana plays powerful trendsetter Farrah Cutney, the queen of Central Rochester High. But as her rivals rise, Farrah learns that the only thing harder than obtaining absolute power is keeping it,” a summary of the series reads on YouTube.
All episodes of the show premiere Wednesday, March 7.
Described by Deadline as a “‘woke’ version of ‘MeanGirls,’” “Youth & Consequences” also stars Marcia Cross (“Desperate Housewives”), Cary Elwes (“Princess Bride”), Sean Grandillo (“The Real O’Neals”) and Kara Royster (“Pretty Little Liars”).
The Ogden School District received $67,500 for letting the production company film at Ogden High. District spokesman Jer Bates previously told the Standard-Examiner the payment will be split, with $37,500 going to the district and the rest going directly to the high school.
If the series is successful, more filming could occur at Ogden High during the summer months.
