Trivia

Maya Erskine and Anna Konkle were both 31 years-old portraying 13 year-old versions of themselves during production; however, the rest of their classmates are played by real-life middle schoolers. This made filming the 'R-rated' scenes a bit challenging and in some cases body doubles were hired.
