Bette Porter - A fiercely ambitious former professor, art curator, and director of CAC. Currently, she is a mayoral candidate for Los Angeles and mother to her teenage daughter Angie.
Alice Pieszecki - An upbeat, feminist talk show host of former podcast fame. Like Bette, Alice used to live in West Hollywood before moving to the East side in her 30s with her girlfriend Nat and Nat's two young children, where Alice juggles her role as a parent with her burgeoning career.
Shane McCutcheon - A self-possessed and successful hairstylist who is arriving back in LA after living on the road and selling her lucrative salons. She used to crash on couches and other people's beds as often as she could – but she's got money now.
Dani Nùñez - A powerful and calculating PR executive at her father's corporation, where she plans to take over for him one day. L.A. born and raised, her father's success afforded Dani a wealthy lifestyle full of private school and privileged opportunities.
Sophie Suarez – A warm and charismatic TV producer who got a full-ride to USC, which is where she met Dani. She left her unstable documentary career two years ago with the intention of putting down roots and making a more stable income.
(Sarah) Finley - A charming and unfocused former Olympic swimmer who works whatever job pays the bills - currently for ALICE as the office PA. What Finley lacks in direction, she makes up for with eagerness and loyalty. She comes from a deeply religious blue-collar family in Missouri, and struggles to reconcile her sexual orientation with her faith.
Micah Lee - Soft-spoken, earnest, adjunct professor at USC with a giant heart, currently getting his PhD in social work. He's a trans man from the Bay Area who lives with his two best friends, Sophie and Dani. Micah transitioned nearly six years ago, and he hasn't yet experienced a serious relationship as his true self. He and Dani dated in college, where they met.
