With the help of his well meaning but overzealous best friends, (Yassir Lester – HBO’s Girls), (Jeremiah Watkins – Comedy Central’s Roast Battle) and (Brian Allen – Netflix’s Buddy Thunderstruck), Denton has the added complication of falling in love with his 2nd grade crush (Amanda Clayton – Tyler Perry’s If Loving You Is Wrong).
