Speaking about the project, Hannah Marks said:
Maika and Jeremy could not be more perfectly suited to bring the complex and challenging characters of Mia and Elliot to life.

We are big fans of their work, and are incredibly grateful and excited to have them on board.

Hannah and Joey have created a story that is wholly original, yet universal in its exploration of how we deal with life’s most trying circumstances. I’m so proud to partner with them on this fantastic project.
