We are thrilled to announce that Sophie Simnett is starring as one of the leads in Netflix’s apocalypse drama series, Daybreak.

The 10-episode series which has been co-created by Aron Eli Coleite and Brad Peyton is based on the Brian Ralph’s graphic novel. It follows 17-year old high school outcast, Josh, searching for his missing girlfriend, Sam in a post-apocalyptic wasteland.

Simnett will be playing the role of Sam, the radiant, confident and undeniably popular high school student.

Daybreak is a joint production between Aron Eli Coleite (Startrek: Discovery) and Brad Peyton (Frontier, Rampage) who, alongside Jeff Fierson (Rampage) will executive produce.

Filming for the series has begun.
