It’s a time of hysteria for Adan Canto.
The 32-year-old Mexican actor is starring in Amazon’s hour-long dramatic thriller pilot Hysteria, from Amazon Studios, Universal Television and Alcon Television Group.
Amazon has added the program to its third pilot season.
From Shaun Cassidy, the series also stars Mena Suvari, James McDaniel, Josh Stewart, Laura San Giacomo and T.R. Knight.
Hysteria takes viewers to Austin, Texas, where members of a girls’ competitive dance team are stricken with a strange, psycho-physiological illness that manifests in violent fits and spasms. Neurologist Logan Harlen (Suvari) is called back to her hometown to investigate the cause. Fighting her own demons (and the growing manipulation of a brother on death row), Logan develops an uneasy suspicion that the hysteria surrounding the girls might actually be linked to social media and her own tragic past.
The show is written by Cassidy.
Amazon customers will once again be invited to watch and provide feedback on the pilots they want to see turned into full series, which will then become available on Prime Instant Video.
Hysteria joins The Cosmopolitans, Really and Hand Of God for Amazon’s third pilot season, which will all debut later this year on Amazon Instant Video.
