Trailer 2: Jess


Meet Jess! In 2000, she is in her mid-20s. She is from Edmonton, Canada, lives in Auckland, NZ. Working on Master of Creative Writing. Jess is logical and likes to plan ahead, yet her empathy can sometimes make her act on impulse. She loves her friends, but meeting large groups of new people can make her anxious, so she prefers smaller gatherings.

Episode 1 will be out January 3, and there will be 52 weekly episodes all through 2020. The next trailer will be focusing on Olivia - look out for that December 20!
