Lynch has been appeared in Disney XD’s short-form series, “Moises Rules” and is one of five siblings in the musical group R5. Marano has been seen in “Without a Trace,” “Back to You” and “The Sarah Silverman Program.”

Kevin Kopelow and Heath Seifert (“Good Burger,” “Keenan & Kel”) are the project’s creators-exec producers.
