Amazon orders Hysteria, starring Mena Suvari; will air this fall

Amazon has officially added "Hysteria" to its third pilot season, the company announced today. The Shaun Cassidy-created show, which we last told you about in March, stars Mena Suvari, James McDaniel, Josh Stewart, Adan Canto, Laura San Giacomo, and T.R. Knight.

Hysteria takes viewers to Austin, Texas, where members of a girls’ competitive dance team are stricken with a strange, psycho-physiological illness that manifests in violent fits and spasms. Neurologist Logan Harlen (Suvari) is called back to her hometown to investigate the cause. Fighting her own demons (and the growing manipulation of a brother on death row), Logan develops an uneasy suspicion that the hysteria surrounding the girls might actually be linked to social media and her own tragic past.

"Hysteria" will air later this year on Amazon Prime. Customers will once again be invited to watch and provide feedback on the pilots they want to see turned into full series, which will then become available on Prime Instant Video. You'll recall this is the same process "Zombieland: The Series" went through in 2013; viewers weren't hip to it, and it never went to series.
