Roles: 
Greg - (Lead) Late 30's through mid 40's, male. Greg is a washed up musician. He attempted to kickstart his solo career and was met with failure after failure. After some time of trying, he realizes how unfeasible his idea was and settles for being a bartender for Trish. Now, he lives his life just trying to get by, "paying the bills" so to speak.

Lyla - (Lead) 18 - early 20's, female. Lyla is dying from cancer and just wants to live life to the fullest. She wants no one worrying about her, not even those closest to her. She loves music and wants to play the guitar more than anything. This love magnetizes her to Greg as a result. She never gives up, and practically begs Greg to teach her.

Trish - (Supporting) Late 30's female. Trish is Greg's Boss and just wants him to do his job. She has a dominant personality and is very intolerant of Greg's unmotivated behavior. She looks out for her business as her first priority. However, she is a caring person underneath her harsh exterior.

Bob - (Supporting) 40's male. Bob is a real estate agent and Greg's long-time friend. He lets Greg use a room to teach Lyla guitar. His personality is very much a business man, but his friendship with Greg overrides his drive for success.

Quinn Harrison (Female - 18-20 yrs) The young and spunky new tech intern at the Oakmont Police Department. Most of the time she takes care of future ways of surveillance, walkie talkies, and she set up the wifi... so that's cool. She likes to use sarcasm and cooking food.
