Woodell will play Buckley, an out of work actor and “whisky connoisseur,” whose boozy charm & go with the flow attitude is very attractive to Cassie.

Greg Berlanti, Cuoco, Sarah Schechter, Steve Yockey, Meredith Lavender and Marcie Ulin are executive producers. Yes, Norman’s Suzanne McCormack is co-executive producer. Susanna Fogel directs and executive produces the first two episodes.
