Amazon unveils the official trailer for Electric Girls (The Power) , a series based on the novel of the same name by Naomi Alderman , published in Italy by Nottetempo .


The Italian title is more didactic than the original one, where “power” is understood in the broadest possible sense: when adolescents from all over the world develop an organ that allows them to emit powerful electric shocks, the balance of power between men and women they roll over. The power girls can wield is a liberation, but some of them begin to abuse it…just as men always have.

The world of Electric Girls matches ours except for one little freak of nature. Suddenly, and without warning, teenage girls develop the power to electrocute others at will. The Power follows a cast of incredible characters from London to Seattle, Nigeria to Eastern Europe, as The Power evolves from a mild tingling in the collarbones of teenage girls to a total upheaval in the balance of power around the world.

Alderman is a student of Margaret Atwood , and her book falls within the realm of feminist speculative fiction .

I remind you that the first episode will arrive on March 31 on Prime Video . Each new episode will then be released on a weekly basis, leading up to the season finale scheduled for May 12 . The showrunner of the series is Raelle Tucker ( True Blood ), while the production is handled by Sister ( Chernobyl ).

The book is published in Italy by Nottetempo . Here is the synopsis:

Naomi Alderman imagines a world dominated by women, in which men are reduced to semi-slavery. Teenage girls have in fact developed a kind of electrical energy capable of electrocuting anyone who tries to molest them. Four characters guide us through the different social, political, media and confessional scenarios that the revolutionary overturning of hierarchies and gender relations has triggered, telling us how the spread of the spark of female power has rapidly degenerated into depravity. Women now destroy, rape, torture and kill just as men had done before them. This is the awful truth. Alderman’s dystopian universe, in fact, grows and develops around a very topical and disturbing question: why people, beyond gender and race,
