In both journeys throughout her twenties, Natalie experiences life-changing love, devastating heartbreak and rediscovers herself.

April Prosser is behind the screenplay. Screen Arcade‘s Bryan Unkeless and Eric Newman will produce, having recently released sci-fi feature Project Power with the streamer. CatchLight StudiosJessica Malanaphy will also produce, with Alyssa Rodrigues executive producing for Screen Arcade.

Reinhart, repped by UTA, Anonymous Content, and Peikoff Mahan, first broke-out as Betty Cooper on popular CW series Riverdale. Her first major studio film was Hustlers, where she starred opposite Jennifer Lopez and Constance Wu, and followed that with a starring role in Amazon romance Chemical Hearts, which she also executive produced.

Kahiu is repped by CAA, Gotham Group, and Sloane Offer.
