Character Guide:

(Victoria Justice as Lindy)
Lindy's been powerfully shaped by two life events. The first was the horrific abduction of her younger sister, Sara. In the aftermath of that trauma, Lindy dropped out of college, moved to New York, and became a hacker so she could dedicate herself to finding Sara, while occasionally bending the law to help others with their own unsolved missing persons cases.

(Casey Deidrick as Tommy)
Tommy, the dry-witted New York native descends from a long line of cops and now works in the NYPD Cyber Unit. He's smart, tough, no-nonsense, and started as a beat cop before working his way up to Cyber detective. Tommy is skeptical of Lindy's tactics and motivations, but he decides to work with her when his partner, Ben, starts helping Lindy track the stalker.

Harvey Guillen as (George)
George is Lindy's friend, confidante, and coworker at her day job in the IT department of a financial company. A fellow hacker, George has always helped Lindy out when she needed assistance whether it's legal or slightly left of the law.

Kiersey Clemons (Sophia)
Sophia is Lindy's hip, gorgeous and vibrant best friend and roommate who owns the popular downtown nightclub IRL. Two years ago, Sophia rescued Lindy from perpetual couch surfing when she first moved to New York by inviting her to crash in her apartment—and Lindy never left.

John Garet Stoker (Connor)
Connor is Sophia's other best friend – a young blogger for a gossip site. He has a friendly rivalry with Lindy, and supports Sophia's attempts to get Lindy to join a dating app, helping Lindy navigate potential matches. Always having to share Sophia's attentions with Lindy, Connor has his own selfish reasons for wanting Lindy to have a boyfriend.
