Euphoria, which is being developed for and written for HBO by Sam Levinson (Assassination Nation), is also produced by indie production company A24, who delivered last year’s acclaimed Amazon series, Comrade Detective.
The original series that HBO’s Euphoria is based on ran for just 10 episodes from 2012 to 2013.
