Based on Chris Bohjalian’s bestseller, the dark comedic thriller stars Kaley Cuoco (The Big Bang Theory) as Cassandra “Cassie” Bowden, a flight attendant who wakes up hungover in a Dubai hotel room… with a dead body next to her. Knight will play the series-regular role of Cassie’s older brother Davey, who “gently” disagrees with her life choices and is constantly frustrated that his sister remembers their childhood very differently.
The cast also includes Michiel Huisman (Game of Thrones), Sonoya Mizuno (Maniac), Colin Woodell (The Originals), Merle Dandridge (Greenleaf) and Griffin Matthews (Dear White People).
