The ensemble cast includes Emma Booth, Emalia, Naomi Sequeira, Miah Madden , Courtney Clarke, Courtney Monsma, Thomas Cocquerel and Ditch Davey.

Directors include Tenika Smith, Nina Buxton and Erin White. Jessica Carrera and Kerrie Mainwaring produce, with executive producers Mark Fennessy and Chapple, and Paramount+’s Sophia Mogford.
