Show creator Frank Blenman, Trust, 7 Days, and Dwayne “DC” Coles, Better Than My Last, Paulie & Jake, The Black Van, Secret Indictment, P.O.M.E., created a complex coming-of-age story that depicts the angst of a teen black girl under the close scrutiny of her military family. Prentiss Marquis captures the hopefulness and the frustration of Chase’s desire to be an ordinary teenager. Issues arise when the endless hours of discipline and training by her father come to head when Chase is triggered to protect the weak and innocent. The promise of a normal college life and relationships are all upended when Chase is forced to acknowledge that she is different from her peers. Her close-knit family has always been her shield from the truth of her origin and now it will take their combined courage to see her through. Blenman is an amazing director with a unique vision of the world. His skill in creating psychological intensity brings the characters to life and draws the viewer into the complex emotions of Chase Price.
Dwayne “DC” Coles, the series Lead Producer & Showrunner, is committed to employing a predominately female BIPOC crew and cast. “Timing couldn’t be more perfect for a character like Chase, who embodies strength; she is unapologetically confident and showcases strong values for teen girls to look up to and model as a teen shero. Chase is a director and producer’s dream character and Prentiss Marquis is perfect for this role,” says Coles,
