Season one consists of 10 one-hour episodes starring Australian actress Georgia Flood as a runaway bride who discovers there’s a lot more to life than she imagined. The cast of season one also includes Lucas Neff (Raising Hope, Downward Dog), Seana Kofoed (Men in Trees, Flaked), Mary Hollis Inboden (The Real O’Neals, Here And Now), and Rory O’Malley (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Hamilton).

When Amanda (Flood), an Upper East Side socialite, runs away from her own dream wedding, she realizes that the life she thought she wanted wasn’t actually right after all. After impulsively joining a Renaissance Faire, Amanda experiences an unexpected awakening that leads her to reevaluate everything she thought she knew about the pursuit of happiness. She quickly develops new friendships, rivalries and romances that, much to the confusion of her family, opens her eyes to new beginnings.
Neff stars as David, Amanda’s love interest and Ren Faire actor who goes by the name “Pizzle Humpsalot,” performing Shakespearean parodies in the mud. Kofoed plays Maggie, the venerable Queen Elizabeth at the Faire. Inboden is Delilah, a free-spirited washer wench who becomes Amanda’s new best friend. And O’Malley plays Brian, Maggie’s confidant and the Faire’s beloved Shakespeare.
