CHICAGO – Comic book adaptations aren’t just for superheroes anymore. “Paper Girls,” by Brian K. Vaughan, has been adapted into a TV series that will stream on Prime Video beginning July 29th, and features Riley Lai Nelet, Camryn Jones, Fina Strazza and Sofia Rosinsky as the paper route foursome.

They portray Erin (Nelet), Tiffany (Jones), K.J.(Strazza) and Mac (Rosinsky), who are delivering papers in Cleveland the morning after Halloween in 1988. When a strange sky starts to engulf them, they are unwittingly caught in a conflict between warring time travelers. As they travel from our present, the past and the future, they encounter both the time factions and future versions of themselves. The series also features Ali Wong (as the adult Erin) and Nate Corddry.
