Guy Pearce, Sorcha Groundsell and Percelle Ascott are set to star in a new romantic drama called The Innocents.
Farren Blackburn is executive producer of the Netflix series and directed six of the first season's eight episodes.
The streaming network created a dating 'Coach' like the one in Season 4's 'Hang the DJ.'
"When teenagers Harry and June run away from their repressive family lives to be together, they are thrown into an extraordinary journey of self-discovery that derails their innocent dream," a synopsis said. "Secrets kept from them by their respective parents test their love to breaking point; and the extraordinary gift they possess unleashes powerful forces intent on dividing them forever."
The streaming service released a 70-second trailer Thursday that shows the characters' faces interspersed with images of shattering glass and a letter revealing their plan to take off.
