City Announces Premiere Date For Original Survivalist Drama Between

City and shomi today announced the world broadcast premiere date for new premium original drama series “Between,” starring Jennette McCurdy (“iCarly,” “Sam & Cat”).

With six, one-hour episodes, “Between” is the story of a town under siege from a mysterious disease that has wiped out everybody except those 21 years old and under. In the series premiere episode “School’s Out,” a mysterious virus begins to kill off adults in the small town of Pretty Lake, and those left alive scramble to survive. Wiley Day (McCurdy) is pregnant but she has a plan: she’s going to give up the baby and leave Pretty Lake behind forever – that is until the government quarantines a 10-mile radius around the town. Trapped inside, Wiley’s best friend Adam (Jesse Carere, “Finding Carter”), whose plans to attend MIT are dashed, knows their only hope of escape is to find the cause of the virus.

During the chaos, other teen residents take advantage of the ensuing lawlessness. “Creekers” from the edge of town – Ronnie (Kyle Mac, “Hemlock Grove”) and his brother Pat (Jim Watson, “The Strain”) – drive into Pretty Lake for a looting spree, while Chuck (Justin Kelly, “Maps to the Stars”), a rich-kid athlete, tries to keep some semblance of law in the town his father used to practically own. Gord (Ryan Allen, “Blue Mountain State”), a farm boy, tries to keep his friends from getting hurt or killed, and Ellen (Sarah Podemski, “The Border”), a prison guard, tries to save Mark (Jack Murrah, “Beauty and the Beast”), a young inmate, from a prison gang with a grudge.

The series will air Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT (check local listings), beginning May 21st on City.  Following the broadcast, “Between” will make its exclusive Canadian SVOD premiere the next day on shomi.
