It’s a powerful addition to our line up and the strong, authentic characters are sure to resonate with our audience.”

Royal (“Easy A”) and Karen DiConcetto (“Ruby & The Rockits”), who will also serve as executive producers, alongside Craig Piligian (“Abducted: The Carlina White Story”) and Beth Miller (“Revenge of the Bridesmaids”) from Pilgrim Studios and Danielle VonZerneck (“Left to Die”).
