The plot follows Flynne, Grace Moretz's character, as she begins to realize that what she is doing is not virtual reality, but that someone in London (70 years in the future) found a way to open a mysterious portal to her world. That way, if someone gets hurt in the simulation, the same thing happens to them in reality.
Scott B. Smith serves as showrunner, with Vincenzo Natali and Alrick Riley directing. As for the cast, Chloë will be joined by Jack Reynor, Gary Carr, Eli Goree, Louis Herthum, JJ Feild, T'Nia Miller, Charlotte Riley and Alexandra Billings, among other great actors.

Television shared a short teaser that gives us more details about the series.
