We’re very excited about this one! Based on Naomi Alderman’s award-winning novel about girls suddenly developing the power to electrocute people, comes The Power, the upcoming series from SISTER (Chernobyl) which will premiere on Prime Video this March.
Watch the teaser trailer here…
The Power is our world, but for one twist of nature. Suddenly, and without warning, teenage girls develop the power to electrocute people at will. The series features a cast of remarkable characters from London to Seattle, Nigeria to Eastern Europe, as the Power evolves from a tingle in teenagers’ collarbones to a complete reversal of the power balance of the world.
