Very simple trailer using a before and after model. Potential readers would relate to the before and desire to be the after.
Excellent choice of narrator, she sounds high fashion.
The bulk of the trailer is spent explaining the ordinary world where everyone is pretty followed by the crisis, brief praise then the directive for the full series.
In Tally Youngblood’s world, looks matter. She lives in a society created to function with perfect-looking people who never have a chance to think for themselves. And she’s tired of it. First as an ugly, then a pretty, and finally a special, Tally takes down the social infrastructure. And then, a generation later, a world obsessed with fame and instant celebrity—and filled with extras—will reap the consequences.
