Looks like they’re trying to make Game of Thrones seem almost family-friendly by comparison.
The thing about building a business model around being ‘transgressive’ is that what was ‘edgy and intense’ just last year is old news this year.
So you need to find new ways to ‘push the envelope’.
For example, a movie about getting busy with a fish-creature won awards in ‘The Shape Of Water’, but wouldn’t bat an eye if somebody told a similar story this year.
They have to find new craziness to push forward to the mainstream. Fortunately for Hollywood, the intersectional movement’s latest push has offered a variety of new ways to push that envelope.
And, surprise, surprise, those shifting norms are being packaged in a show that revolves around teens.
Here’s the trailer:
TV viewers are outraged by a new teen drama featuring full frontal nudity, graphic sex and a shocking rape scene.
Euphoria, starring former Disney actress Zendaya, premieres on HBO this coming Sunday, and while its trailer shows some explicit moments, a new article in The Hollywood Reporter is dishing extra details on the show’s R-rated impulses.
The series will follow a group of troubled high school students, and its pilot episode will include a ‘choking’ sex scene between teens, as well as the statutory rape of a 17-year-old trans character.
The shocking scene reportedly features an erect prosthetic penis, which will be worn by actor Eric Dane, 46, who plays the assailant.
Additionally, the pilot will show Zendaya’s character suffering from a drug overdose – something that may shock fans of the 22-year-old actress who is best known for her role in the squeaky-clean Disney sitcom Shake It Up.
How do you top that in a second episode? How about a locker room scene?
Meanwhile, The Hollywood Reporter claims that the second episode of the series will feature a locker room scene that shows 30 penises.
Series creator Sam Levinson conceded that ‘there are going to be parents who are going to be totally f**king freaked out’.
Yet another Disney actress turned over-the-top Hollywood bad girl?
Because the toxicity of Miley Virus wasn’t enough to put up with.
Get Doug Giles’ new book:
Rules For Radical Christians is not a survival devotional designed to help the young Christian adult limp through life. Rather, it is a road-tested, dominion blueprint that will equip the young adult with leadership skills and sufficient motivation to rise to a place of influence in an overtly non-Christian culture. Rules For Radical Christians gives the reader the keys to become strategically equipped to move into an anti-theistic environment and effectively influence it for the glory of God.
