Netflix has ordered an untitled TV series from writer/producer Chris Keyser, best known for creating FOX teen drama Party of Five, SpoilerTV has learned. Below is the logline:

When West Ham, an idyllic New England suburb, becomes polluted with a rotten stench in the air, the parents of the town decide to bus their teenage children away for their own safety. Things get strange, however, when, after hours on the bus, the 200+ teenagers are mysteriously redeposited back in New Ham in the middle of the night. The stench is now gone, but also gone are their parents & any road leading out of town (all of which are now blocked by a thick forest). Now with no way out, no grown-ups, or even a connection to the outside world to govern them (even the internet has turned to static), these teens will party, panic, grieve, fight, and ultimately have to decide how to deal with the unthinkable… how will they survive this? Is that even possible?

Per Production Weekly, the series will begin shooting in September.

Marc Webb (The Amazing Spider-Man, Limitless) will direct.
