Rhea’s days pass on around her friends Molly, Watson and Ginger who are part of her after-school coding crew. To top it all, her life also comprises an Indian restaurant and a big, fat multigenerational family. Everything is smooth-sailing until Rhea stumbles upon love. She falls in love with DJ Max that spurs her innate passion for music and beats, and rhythm and spins on with it.
Speaking to HollywoodLife, Michael Bishop who plays DJ Max has described his character as ‘extremely passionate and fun’ and the perfect blend of ‘dorky and cool.’ Talking about her character Ginger, Kerri Medders told HollywoodLife that she is a social media content creator who utilises her popularity to support and push her friends towards achieving their goals. Medders went on to appreciate how big-hearted Ginger is with the ones she is close to.
Anna Cathcart, who plays Molly, termed her character to be a supportive, loyal and encouraging friend who always stands up for her tribe and is good at coming up with inventions at the school’s coding club. While Jabbril Cook, who essays the role of Watson, is Molly’s partner-in-crime. Cook told HollywoodLife that Jabbril is the ‘savvy designer’ of Rhea’s gang with an eye for detail. Together they are one unbeatable, cool, dream team.
