The four leading actresses have been announced for the Paper Girls Amazon series based on the graphic novel by Brian K. Vaughan and Cliff Chiang. Sofia Rosinsky (Fast Layne), Riley Lai Nelet (Altered Carbon), Camryn Jones (Cherish the Day), and Fina Strazza (A Christmas Melody) have been cast in the main roles.
In Paper Girls, four young ladies are delivering papers on Halloween in 1988 when they get caught between warring time travelers. They are sent through time, exploring the past, present, and future, to save the world. While on that adventure, they meet their future selves and must decide to follow or change their own paths.
Rosinsky will portray Mac Coyle, the tough, sharp-tongued working class Catholic girl who becomes the group’s leader. Nelet was cast as Erin Tieng, an immigrant caught between her Chinese roots and the culture of being an American preteen. Jones is set to play Tiffany Quilkin, an ambitious girl with deep pop culture knowledge and love for technology. Strazza has the role of K.J. Brandman, a Jewish girl from a wealthy family who conflicts with her mother’s hopes for her.
Paper Girls is set to film in Chicago in 2021. It is being produced by Amazon Studios and Legendary Television in association with Plan B. Stephany Folsom, Christopher C. Rogers, and Christopher Cantwell are executive producers with Folsom and Rogers set as co-showrunners.
