Maddie Phillips and Anjelica Bette Fellini take teenage rebellion to a whole new level in Netflix’s original series Teenage Bounty Hunters. Watch the first trailer above.
The Atlanta-set comedy, which bows on August 14, stars Phillips and Bette as fraternal twins Sterling and Blair, a duo looking for more trouble beyond their pristine Southern lifestyle. The twins team with experienced bounty hunter Bowser Jenkins (Kadeem Hardison) and start bringing in local criminals.
“We obviously have a gift for this line of work,” one sister tells the other.
The first look shows the girls balancing the hazards of their secret profession with the finer details of high school life including romance, advanced school work and of course, the popular kids. Sterling and Blair work to keep their academic lives and their questionable extracurricular separated.
“We are really nailing this work life balance,” Fellini’s Blair jokes. “Why do we even complain so much? It’s super easy to have it all.”
Teenage Bounty Hunters, created by Kathleen Jordan, comes to the streamer on August 14. The comedy also stars Myles Evans, Spencer house, Devon Hales, Virginia Williams, Mackenzie Astin, Shirley Rumierk and Cliff Smith. Netflix also released the key art Thursday, with the caption “We hunt bad guys.”
Originally titled Slutty Teenage Bounty Hunters, the Netflix series began shooting in 2019. The decision to shoot in Georgia came months before the state announced its strict abortion law known as the “heartbeat bill.”
Jordan, Jenji Kohan, Tara Herrmann, Robert Sudduth and Black McCormick executive produced the 10-episode series. Jesse Peretz directed and exec produced the pilot.
