The following six original series will premiere on go90 over the next year, with 12-episode runs for each:

#DoOver (working title): What if you could repeat the most important day of your life until you perfected it?

Mr. Student Body President (working title): A dark political comedy about an incredibly likable and charming teenage dictator. Ferris Bueller meets Frank Underwood. Created and directed by Ryan Hunter and Jack Ferry.
Cold (working title): A dramatic crime series about a teenage girl who seeks out her birth parents only to find that her separation from them occurred due to significant tragedy. In her efforts to uncover what really happened, she explores the town where she would have grown up, finding that although seemingly quaint - it is a place with many secrets. Created and directed by Emily Diana Ruth.
