Russell appears as the new wife of Burrell’s character.

Red Crown Prods.’ Daniela Taplin Lundberg (“The Kids Are All Right”) produce with Eric Kopeloff and Shannon Lail, with Arlook Group’s Richard Arlook set to exec produce with Red Crown’s Daniel Crown and Riva Marker. Partial financing will come from exec producer Peter Touche of Sandia Media.
