The protagonist of the series – 15-year-old Wayne in the performance of Mark McKenna (“Sing Street”). In the company of the girl Del (Siera Bravo), in which he is secretly in love, Wayne goes on a motorcycle in search of “Pontiac” Trans Am 1978, owned by his father. At the end of a harsh, and sometimes rather bloody, journey Wayne hopes to return the stolen car.
One of the roles in the series will be played by Joshua J. Williams (“Madbaund Farm”).
Together with Reese and Wernicke, the series is produced by Greg Coolidge and Kirk Ward. Ian B. MacDonald (“Episode”) has put the pilot series.
