Talking about the plot line, Flynne Fisher, her brother Burton and their dying mother live in a small town in the Blue Ridge Mountains in 2032. Their mother’s conditions deteriorates and the medical bills add up. Flynne and Burton make extra money playing simulations (“Sims”). The two siblings share Burton’s avatar, “jockeying” for high-paying customers to beat challenging game levels. When Burton is offered a chance to beta test a new Sim, it’s Flynne who ends up playing, pretending to be her brother. The Sim takes place in London and it tasks Flynne with breaking into a corporation known as the Research Institute—to steal a valuable secret. When the assignment goes wrong, Flynne begins to realize the Sim is more real than she ever could have imagined.
The much awaited series “The Peripheral” is produced by Amazon Studios and Warner Bros Television, in association with Kilter Films. The series will premiere, October 21 on Prime Video.
