More than a game
The ringroad has quite the pedigree for a new TV series. It is based on the novel of the same name by William Gibson and is being developed by Westworld creators Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy. Not to mention that it stars Chloë Grace Moretz in the lead role.
The story is set in the near future where Flynne Fisher (Moretz) and her brother Burton (Jack Reynor) play paid simulations, or sims, so their family can make ends meet. When offered the chance to beta test the latest simulation, Flynne discovers a dark secret that could put them all in danger.
The first in the series of The ringroad is Friday, October 21 on Prime Video.
