The character descriptions have been set but the cast has not been announced.
Sean Cabrera: Latino male, early 4os, He is described as “a good man trying to do right by everyone in his life”. Sound familiar?
Cody Cabrera: Sean’s son, a “whip-smart and rebellious teen” . He is referred to as “the angriest kid in town.” Just what we need, another moody, hard headed kid.
Nancy Tompkins: A single mom, in her 30s, the girl next door, but don’t underestimate her. The description says “there’s an edge to her.”
Nick Tompkins: Nancy’s teenage son is apparently “screwed up” . He’s described as “too old to stay home, too scared to flee.”
Ashley Tompkins: Nancy’s daughter is the level-headed teenager on the series. She is the classic over achiever.
Andrea Chapman: Another Andrea? This one is a fortysomething former flower child who lives in the city’s outskirts and is “trying to recover after a horrible marriage.”
