Netflix has revealed the first for its romantic comedy series Dash & Lily, from Shawn Levy’s 21 Laps and Nick Jonas’ Image 32. The 8-episode holiday based series will premiere on November, 10 on Netflix.

The eight-episode holiday comedy revolves around cynical Dash (Austin Abrams) and optimistic Lily (Midori Francis). Trading dares, dreams, and desires in the notebook they pass back and forth at locations all across New York City, they find they have more in common with each other than either expected.

Joe Tracz (Netflix’s A Series of Unfortunate Events) is writer, executive producer, and showrunner for Dash & Lily. Levy and Josh Barry executive produce for 21 Laps and Jonas for Image 32 Cohn and Levithan co-executive produce.
Brad Silberling (A Series of Unfortunate Events) will direct and executive produce the first two episodes Fred Savage and Pamela Romanowsky (Riverdale) also will direct. Filming has started in New York for a 2020 premiere.
Dash, played by Austin Abrams: Dash is an only child born and raised in New York City. He is a smart and cynical teenager whose maturity, wisdom, and sophistication are advanced for his age. Barely tolerating the forced merriment of the holidays, he’d prefer to be alone watching depressing foreign films. Dash can be quite charming, despite his sour feelings on the holiday season.
Lily, played by Midori Francis: Lily is a smart and hopeful New York City teen with a stubborn optimism and youthful energy. Despite her bubbly and passionate demeanor, she possesses a raw and honest vulnerability. The holidays are her favorite time of year, and this holiday season, Lily is looking for love.
Boomer, played by Dante Brown: Boomer’s easygoing nature and unsinkable enthusiasm make him an unlikely BFF to Dash. Full of big ideas and plans (often concocted from behind the counter of the pizza parlor/video store where he works), he’s a loyal friend and a good listener who’s always down for an adventure.
Langston, played by Troy Iwata: Lily’s older brother Langston is romantic, impulsive, and just a little immature. Having dropped out of college after experiencing his first heartbreak, he’ll happily give his sister advice on boys but could stand to take some advice himself.
Agneeta Thacker will play Priya. An Upper East Side party girl and frenemy to Dash. Kreitz will portray Aryn. A vegan riot grrl who’s an older friend to Lily. Stewart will play Roberta. The Den mother of a group of East Village Christmas carolers.
