Dramatic Thriller Hysteria Added To Amazon's Third Pilot Season
Posted by Joseph Lee on 07.01.2014



Coming Soon reports that Amazon has announced that the hour-long thriller series Hysteria will be a part of its third pilot season. It comes from Amazon Studios, Universal Television and Alcon Television and will debut later this year on Amazon Instant Video.

The series stars Mena Suvari (American Beauty) as Dr. Logan Harlen, James McDaniel (Orange Is the New Black) as Carl Sapsi, Josh Stewart (The Dark Knight Rises) as Ray Ratajeck, Adan Canto (X-Men: Days of Future Past) as Matt Sanchez, Laura San Giacomo (Saving Grace) as Grace Pelayo, T.R. Knight (Grey's Anatomy) as Carter Harlen, Ella Rae Peck and Jenessa Grant. Guest stars include Jason Douglas, Heather Kafka, Asjha Cooper, and Evie Thompson. It was written by Shaun Cassidy (American Gothic, Roar), who will executive produce with Adam Schroeder, Sharon Hall, Andrew Kosove, Broderick Johnson, Bryan Zuriff, and director Otto Bathurst (who won a BAFTA for the UK mini-series Peaky Blinders). Customers can decide if they want the show to become a full series, which will then be available on Prime Instant Video.

Amazon Studios Director Roy Price said: "We're very excited to be collaborating with Universal Television and Alcon Television Group to bring 'Hysteria' to life for viewers. Shaun is known for creating shows with layers of mystery, depth of character and topical themes. His script immediately hooked us and we can't wait to hear what customers think."

Cassidy added: "I can think of no better platform than Amazon to tell a story that explores the price of fear and the very real threat of viral connection becoming contagion."

Here's a synopsis: "Hysteria" takes viewers to Austin where members of a girls' competitive dance team are stricken with a strange, psycho-physiological illness that manifests in violent fits and spasms. Neurologist Logan Harlen (Suvari) is called back to her hometown to investigate the cause. Fighting her own demons (and the growing manipulation of a brother on death row), Logan develops an uneasy suspicion that the hysteria surrounding the girls might actually be linked to social media and her own tragic past.
