Cast


Danielle Bacanskas - "Jess"

A little hot tempered and short-sighted, Jess spends a little too much time on her phone. Nonetheless, she means well, even if it's a little tucked away on the inside.


Henry Chavez - "Nate"

Nate is the class clown. Or at least he thinks he is. He's a good person, but that can sometimes be obscured by his personality. He also loves food.


Adam Thayer - "Biology Teacher"

A high school biology teacher that isn't exactly all that excited about his job.
