the most interesting story ever told.
RAYLEEN: (Female, 25-­‐45; Lead) Slightly eccentric woman who

hails from small-­‐town Tennessee. She grew up on the farm and

with a Southern accent.
GEORGE: (Male, 25-­‐45; Lead) A guy who looks tough on the

outside, but tends to be very emotional, especially when it comes
