If you love dystopian futures in your television, and if you love dance, well…
Check out the trailer that’s arrived for upcoming Hulu series Utopia Falls, a sci-fi dystopian future series following a group of young people that uncover archive of cultural relics that have long been forbidden in their colony. Things like… hip hop. “Whoa. How’s he do that so fast?”
This looks… like it’s probably not for me. Some of the trailer hit this writer’s cringe nerve, but there could certainly be enough here to entertain others. Step Up showed that you can expand an entire movie franchise with dancing as the major appeal; we’ll see if music and dance cultures can drive a Y.A.-style series like this.
All 10 episodes of Utopia Falls arrive on Hulu on February 14.
Official synopsis for Utopia Falls:
A group of teens in a distant future colony uncover an ancient forbidden archive of historical, cultural and musical relics. This discovery forces them to question everything they’ve been taught, and use the power of music to ignite change in their reality to expose the truth.
