We are interested in books as well as movies or television. If you’ve read us long enough, you’ll know it’s true. We love seeing the characters come to life and we love seeing how people interpret someone else’s story.
One of the things we love right now is that Hollywood doesn’t look at books and automatically thinks of movies. They see that we also want television series and not leave things out. They see that we want a construction of the story, more angst and added action. They see that we want people not to take away our stories.
And that’s the thing, books are our stories. Yes, we are aware that we did not write them, but the power of a good book is that we see it as ours.

WHO STARS IN THE SHOW?
Grace Van Patten (Character: Lucy Albright)
On the surface, Lucy is a sheltered but well-adjusted girl from a prosperous Long Island town. Her biting humor and often cold demeanor have earned her the label “Ice Queen” among her friends. But beneath her confident facade, Lucy hides a childhood trauma that has left her feeling disconnected from her peers. When she meets Stephen, her Lucy sees a dark streak in him that she recognizes in herself and, unaware of it, will bring out the demons in her.
jackson white (Character: Stephen DeMarco)
With an enigmatic quality and fierce intelligence, Stephen’s ability to read people has always been a means of survival. But underneath his charm, he has a dark side. When he meets Lucy (Van Patten), he brings out a side of her that is both fascinating and terrifying. Together they will embark on a tumultuous journey, with repercussions neither could have foreseen.
Catherine Missal (Character: Bree)
Bree is down to earth and caring with a strong sense of who she is. Bree is one of Lucy’s best friends and she has been since her first day of college. Although she initially comes across as naive, she is actually quite the opposite.
Spencer House (Character: Wrigley)
Wrigley is the most celebrated athlete on campus and always the life of the party. Although it seems that life is easy for him, his great personality hides a lot of insecurities.
Sonya Mena (Character: Pipe)
Pippa is the ringleader of the group who uses her bravado to mask a deep insecurity. Although she would never admit it, she cares too much what other people think. She and Lucy (Grace VanPatten) become close friends in college, but find themselves constantly at odds with each other.
branden cook (Character: Evan)
Evan is a kind and intelligent boy who often feels stunted by his father’s success, causing him to lack motivation at times. He is too concerned with being the “good guy” and puts the needs of his friends before his own; this leads to a pent-up anger that could eventually get the best of him.
Benjamin Wadsworth (Character: He drew)
Drew is a college freshman and Wrigley’s younger brother. He is shy but smart and used to living in Wrigley’s shadow.
Alice Crowder (Character: Diana)
Diana has an air of Audrey Hepburn, elegant, self-confident and serene. But underneath it all, she has formidable strength and is no fool. Once Lucy finds out that Diana and Stephen (jackson white) have been in a tumultuous relationship for years, she is threatened, and rightfully so. Diana knows Stephen in a way that Lucy doesn’t and knows how to navigate her games.
