Lots of Atlanta talent starring in this one, including Chris Tavarez (Meet the Browns), Annie Jacob (Party Boat, Life Sentence) and Michael Provost (The Case for Christ, Insatiable), along with Giorgia Whigham (13 Reasons Why) and Nate Buzolic (The Vampire Diaries, The Originals). Director Jeffrey G. Hunt has been behind the camera for episodes of numerous TV series, including the Georgia-filmed Vampire Diaries and Originals.
