It is Wayne and Del against the world. It will star Mark McKenna (Sing Street, Kat and Alfie: Redwater) as the titular character and Ciara Bravo (Big Time Rush, Red Band Society) as “Del.” Joshua J. Williams (Mudbound) will also recur as “Orlando.”
The 10 episode series is written and created by Shawn Simmons. The series is executive produced by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick (Deadpool, Zombieland), Greg Coolidge (Ride Along) and Kirk Ward. Iain B. MacDonald (Episodes, I’m Dying Up Here, Shameless) directed the pilot. The series hails from Endeavor Content.
