  • She will play Liz Riley, James Reece's (Pratt) close friend, a former Army pilot who is equal parts wit and warmth. She hails from Alabama and her friends mean everything to her. As they've been to hell and back together, there's no danger she wouldn't face for them.
  • Ji-young Yoo will star in the upcoming drama developed by Alice Bell and Lulu Wang. She recently appeared in the Netflix film Moxie. She will next appear in the upcoming feature film The Sky Is Everywhere.
  • She will play Mercy, a carefree New Yorker who becomes tangled up in the lives of the expat community in Hong Kong.
