We all know of Barb, the unfortunate best friend of Nancy in Stranger Things. After her untimely death on the show, a petition was set up under the hashtag – JusticeForBarb.
Well it looks like Netflix has listened to the people, and given the actress behind the phenomenon, Shannon Purser, her very own show.
Before you say it, yes. We know she’s also in Riverdale. But this show actually focuses on her. She is the star.
The show, Sierra Burgess Is a Loser, has already been getting a lot of attention. Just take a look at the teaser on Facebook…
The description reads: “A case of mistaken identity results in unexpected romance when the most popular girl in high school and the biggest loser must come together to win over their crushes.”
It might seem a bit ‘teen’ for your taste (I felt the same), but after watching the teaser trailer, I’m counting down the days until I can Netflix binge.
Netflix says: “Sierra Burgess is brilliant, talented, funny, kind, and sorta catfishing the maybe love of her life. Sierra Burgess is a Loser premieres September 7.”
