Our family members are not always who we think. When Eleonore and Michael Richland (played by Gillian Jacobs and Josh Gad) lose their parents unexpectedly in a small plane crash, they must choose between two very different paths: honor their father’s legacy as a world-renowned cardiologist -- or risk everything for the truth. The first season of a new six episode fictional drama from Wondery, the makers of “Dirty John,” “Dr. Death,” and “Over My Dead Body.” Starring Gillian Jacobs (Community, Love), Josh Gad (Frozen, Book of Mormon), and Amy Landecker (Transparent).

Mum_O ,

Predictable end to season 1

Great story telling, but ending of Season 1 was expected...But can’t wait for Season 2!!

AndraM80 ,

Olaf

I wished they would have reported it from a journalist perspective. Josh Gad sounds too much like Olaf - and allthough the story is interesting, it lacks sincerity.
