If you were a teenager in the 90s, you know that the defining cultural moment of the decade was when Mark Wahlberg fingerb*nged Reese Witherspoon on the rollercoaster in the film Fear.

Sorry for being so crass. But that's what happened. We are all adults here.

Creator of The Path Jessica Goldberg is working on a TV series based on this important film work for Peacock.

The official series logline states, “This modern series reinvention finds two young lovers in a psychological game of cat and mouse—but who’s the cat, and who’s the mouse? When David and Nicole first meet in Seattle, it feels like an epic, once-in-a-lifetime romance – but soon it becomes clear that the seemingly perfect couple is anything but. Told from conflicting points of view, the series wrestles with personal demons, hidden agendas and reframes the “he said she said” convention into a twist-filled suspense story about toxic relationships.”

No casting yet for either of the leads or the rollercoaster.
