They are more comfortable moving at a slower pace, however Ollie’s best friend, James, an overly helpful exchange student from England and Emma’s sister, Mandy, a sensational extrovert, both have their own plans for the young couple.
The series will be distributed through Telus Optik On-Demand and YouTube.
