All About Lara Condor’s New Netflix Project
The series is set over the course of one night and follows a high school senior who has lived her life quietly until now, when she seizes the opportunity to change her story and begin living an epic existence, only to discover the next morning that she is a ghost.
This isn’t the actress’ first time working with the streaming service, as fans are aware. She took over Netflix for three years with the fan-favorite trilogy To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before. Lana’s new series will not be her first appearance on television. In 2018, she starred in the science fiction series Deadly Class. As a result, Boo, Bitch will continue to propel the actress further in her Hollywood career.
Condor has mentioned a few things about the project, including in an interview with Travel and Leisure in which she discussed a variety of topics but especially Boo, Bitch, Condor remarked:
“We have actively been making sure that we’re hiring and creating a really diverse writers room,” she told T+L. “I feel like it starts with… making sure that people feel safe, just people feel safe to express themselves and to use their voices. And I think that’s something I’m seeing more of. But again, we have a long way to go.”
Variety has verified that Netflix has ordered an eight-episode season of Boo, Bitch, indicating that it will be a limited series. Each episode will last half an hour.
Netflix has yet to announce a release date for Boo, Bitch, but the series is expected to premiere in 2022.
