Warner Bros. Discovery streaming service Max has shared a first look at Turtles All the Way Down, the adaptation of author John Green’s New York Times bestselling novel that will debut this spring.
From New Line Cinema and Temple Hill, Turtles All the Way Down tackles anxiety through its 17-year-old protagonist, Aza Holmes.
It’s not easy being Aza, but she’s trying… trying to be a good daughter, a good friend, and a good student, all while navigating an endless barrage of invasive, obsessive thoughts that she cannot control.
When she reconnects with Davis, her childhood crush, Aza is confronted with fundamental questions about her potential for love, happiness, friendship, and hope.
Turtles All the Way Down was written by and executive produced by Elizabeth Berger and Isaac Aptaker. The producers include Wyck Godfrey, Marty Bowen, and Isaac Klausner.
Also executive producing are Richard Brener, Nikki Ramey, and Paulina Sussman on behalf of New Line Cinema, alongside Laura Quicksilver, Bart Lipton, John Green, and Rosianna Halse Rojas.
John Green’s book, which you can order at Amazon (#ad), is officially described as follows:
“Sixteen-year-old Aza never intended to pursue the mystery of fugitive billionaire Russell Pickett, but there’s a hundred-thousand-dollar reward at stake, and her Best and Most Fearless Friend, Daisy, is eager to investigate. So together, they navigate the short distance and broad divides that separate them from Russell Pickett’s son, Davis.
“Aza is trying. She is trying to be a good daughter, a good friend, a good student, and maybe even a good detective while also living within the ever-tightening spiral of her own thoughts.”
