Lisette Olivera plays series lead Jess, a brilliant and resourceful DREAMer. She embarks on the adventure of a lifetime to uncover the truth about her family’s mysterious past and save a lost Pan-American treasure. Jake Austin Walker joins her as Liam, a swoon-worthy struggling musician with a permanent chip on his shoulder, who comes from a long line of treasure hunters.

Zuri Reed plays Tasha, Jess’ ride-or-die best friend. She joins the treasure hunt, but is forced to reevaluate her belief system to help her friend. Antonio Cipriano plays Oren, a lovable but self-obsessed goofball with an encyclopedic knowledge of conspiracy theories that attempts to win back Tasha’s affections.
At SDCC, Cipriano and Reed revealed their biggest takeaways from the show, whether they consider themselves history buffs, and what they want their characters to explore in potential future seasons.
