A slew of top-tier directors are on board including, Jennifer Lynch (David Lynch’s daughter) known for directing cult/genre films like “Boxing Helena” and “Surveillance.”
Mena Suvari (“American Beauty”) stars as the lead, alongside Zachary Booth (“Damages”), model/actress, Lydia Hearst (“Cabin Fever: Patient Zero”) and Bill Irwin (“Blue Bloods”, “Law & Order: SVU”), to name a few. The premiere episode was written by Matt Lambert. James Manos, Jr. (“Dexter,” “The Shield,” “The Sopranos”) is executive producer and showrunner. Jason Blum of Blumhouse Productions (“Paranormal Activity,” “Insidious,” “Sinister”) also serves as executive producer, along with Gerard Bocaccio, Stewart Till, Stein, and Roth.
