The series, which is an adaptation of Brian K. Vaughan and Cliff Chiang's graphic novels of the same title, sees four titular paper girls (girls who deliver newspapers by bicycle) head out on their route in 1988 Ohio, only to be caught in a time travel paradox and sent to 2019 Ohio where they learn there is a war going on over the Old Watch's outlaw of time travel. But unfortunately, they unwittingly left their own time, which puts a target on all of their heads.
With a little help from their future selves and a few other friends along the way, the girls will try to get back to their own time, all while reconciling with futures that are very different than what they imagined, let alone hoped for, at their current age of 12.
The show stars Riley Lai Nelet as young Erin and Ali Wong as adult Erin, Camryn Jones as young Tiffany and Sekai Abenì as adult Tiffany, Sofia Rosinsky as Mac Coyle, Fina Strazza as KJ Brandman, Nate Corddry as Larry, and Adina Porter as Prioress.
Stephany Folsom created the series for television and executive produces alongside Christopher C. Rogers, Christopher Cantwell, Vaughan, Chiang, Steven Prinz, and Plan B. Mairzee Almas, Georgi Banks-Davies, Destiny Ekaragha, and Karen Gaviola serve as directors on the eight-episode first season. The show is produced by Amazon Studios and Legendary Television, in association with Plan B.
