in the OK boomerLuPone plays Barbara in a self-centered boomer who shows up at the house of her estranged daughter Sarah (Hayes) hoping to make a living from the family’s money.

Unlike his sister, Nick is excited about her mother’s return and tries to earn her approval. Chiou will portray Trevor, Sarah’s even-tempered husband who runs a construction company. He tries to help his wife adapt to her family, who move in with them and bring with them all their eccentricities. Manarel is Campbell, Sarah’s oldest, a socially conscious high school freshman committed to progressive causes but also just a teenager full of self-doubt and fear. Chee plays Jacob, Sarah and Trevor’s youngest, a bright, sensitive, but fear-ridden boy who lets fear rule his life.
