Three sisters are at the heart of the story
Tiffany is a “Martha Stewart” type person who has written several cook books, with a successful cooking show. Her commitment to hospitality and things being just right is at an almost OCD level. Her most recent book, “Shop Poor Eat Rich,” describes how to serve a family of four, a gourmet meal, for less than $10. She learned to cook from her grandmother who helped raise her, and her two sisters, Nora and Sophie. Their parents are wealthy, famous actors who wanted them raised in a healthy environment so they set them up with the farm.

Nora is a “Sara Connor” type, who works as a gopher on her sister’s cooking show because she has nothing else to do. She is a duck out of water and has the heart of a warrior but no place to channel that aggression or passion. She is the exact opposite of Tiffany. She is anti-social and consumed by video games where she spends hours playing hard core first person shooters. She has a chip on her shoulder and feels that her parents are very selfish and abandoned them to pursue their own professions.

Sheila Avellino plays Sophie
Sophie is the philosopher and star gazer. She makes connections everyone else misses. She is the youngest of the three sisters and is the balance between Tiffany and Nora. She works as the director for the cooking show. Her's is the voice of reason, holding the camp together after the solar flare knocks out power. She is the one who challenges them to read and learn, pushing the others to pursue their talents while they wait for the lights to come back on. She decides to pick up her journal and write, becoming the chronicler of their story.
The women of the cooking show
Avery has a quick wit, and doesn’t suffer fools lightly. She states the obvious when no one else will and is a little impatient in the face of indecision. She was the camera operator on Tiffany's show. She is very artistic and takes up Sophie’s challenge and begins drawing everyone and everything while they wait… to see if the lights will come back on. She is very cynical and challenges them all. She was a loner before the hit, but learns that she has to be a team player to survive. Her humor does help them get through.
Alissa Dellork plays Avery
Paola Torres plays Molly Marie
Nicole Is a brilliant engineer. She is a beautiful black woman who looks like she could be a model but has a “Mr. Spock” type personality. On the cooking show she is in charge of all the electrical hookups, the sound and the lighting, working closely with Avery. She is quiet and keeps to herself while trying to figure things out in her MacGyver-like way. She works hard creating things and working on projects, using her engineering skills trying to make everyone’s lives a little easier on the farm.
Molly Maria is the oldest of the group. Before the hit, she was the producer of the show with a bit of a bullying personality. She is insecure and thinks she has to be tough to keep order. She is a control freak and has to be right in any argument. She has worked her way up from humble beginnings and the world after the flare reminds her of the 3rd world that she worked so hard to leave behind. She struggles against the materialistic person she has become. She must lose her haughty attitude to thrive in the new normal.
K. Victoria Chase plays Nicole
Mikayla Mulgrew plays Sandy
Sandy is the spiritual conscience of the group and butts heads with Molly Marie, who claims to be an atheist, and doesn’t like to hear Sandy talk about her faith. Sandy is the supply manager and the accountant for the group, incredibly efficient when working, but fun and ditzy when she’s not. She is very close to Tiffany and Sophie, is very kind, and ready to make sacrifices for the group. She is afraid at first and learns to be brave. Sandy is the quiet hero who does what needs to be done.
