He loves his dad and his fanny pack, and with his cargo shorts and hiking boots, he’s the accidental poster child for normcore." Clemons is Derica "an aspiring model-slash-activist who is determined to save the planet in style." Kim voices Benny, "a savvy sneakerhead on a mission for generational clout—right after he practices cello and walks the dog." And Young-White voices Truman, "a self-proclaimed “auteur” filmmaker and a budding Casanova."

The series also features a bevy of guest stars including Pamela Adlon as Phyllis, Jeff Bottoms as The Plug,Yvette Nicole Brown as Trini, Rob Delaney as Grant, Zoey Deutch as Lily, Colton Dunn as Principal Weston, John Leguizamo as Glenn the pigeon, Camila Mendes as Melody, Larry Owensas Jules, Linda Park as Joy, Billy Porter as Hiroki Hassan, Ben Schwartz as Cody, Tim Simons as Brian and JB Smoove as Quattro the pigeon.

It is is created and executive produced by Matthew Hausfater, Aaron Buchsbaum and Teddy Riley. Other executive producers include Jon Zimelis and Jason U. Nadler for Serious Business; Peter A. Knight; and Chris Prynoski, Ben Kalina, and Antonio Cannobio for Titmouse.
