Here is the official description from Netflix:

“I Am Not Okay With This is an irreverent origin story that follows a teenage girl who’s navigating the trials and tribulations of high school, all while dealing with the complexities of her family, her budding sexuality, and mysterious superpowers just beginning to awaken deep within her.”
The seven-episode, half-hour series comes from the people behind two other popular Netflix shows centered around teens: “The End of the F***ing World” director and executive producer Jonathan Entwistle and the producers of “Stranger Things.”
“I Am Not Okay” is based on the graphic novel of the same name by Charles Forsman.
Other stars include Sofia Bryant (“The Good Wife,” “The Code”) as Dina, Kathleen Rose Perkins (“Episodes,” “You’re The Worst”) as Maggie, Aidan Wojtak-Hissong (“The Mission,” “Falling Water”) as Liam, and Richard Ellis as Brad Lewis.
The series is co-created and executive produced by Entwistle and Christy Hall. Entwistle also directs and Hall writes. Shawn Levy, Dan Levine, Dan Cohen and Josh Barry produce for 21 Laps Entertainment.
“I Am Not Okay With This” premieres Feb. 26 on Netflix.
