The two actors have been cast as Bernie (Foley), an Uber-like driver who is described as clumsy, dorky and out of date. And then there's Simon (Saxton), intelligent, odd and mostly unnoticed by everyone except his roommate who tortures and shuns him. Already cast are: Ashleigh LaThrop, Tre Hall, Allie MacDonald and Jake Cannavale.

Production on the pilot is currently underway in Vancouver.
