Dash & Lily will follow the whirlwind holiday romance between cynical Dash (Abrams) and optimistic Lily (Francis) as they trade dares, dreams, and desires in a notebook they pass back and forth at locations across New York City, finding they have more in common than they would have expected.

“The most essential quality of 21 Laps shows and films is heart, and Dash & Lily has that quality in spades. Josh Barry and I are thrilled to be starting production with such an exceptional group of collaborators on and off-screen — from writer/showrunner Joe Tracz to our talented directors, incredible cast, and of course, our producing partner, Nick Jonas. This show is inspiring to us and promises to give audiences a uniquely romantic and entertaining New York City holiday adventure,” said Levy.

The cast also includes Dante Brown (Ma, Lethal Weapon) as Dash’s best friend, Boomer, and Troy Iwata (Be More Chill) as Langston, Lily’s older brother. Keana Marie (Huge in France), James Saito (Always Be My Maybe) and Jodi Long (Sullivan & Son) will recur.

Joe Tracz (A Series of Unfortunate Events) will serve as showrunner on the series and will adapt the novel. Production on the series will begin in New York with the series set to premiere in 2020.
