Mikko Alanne (The 33) is spearheading the project, which centers on April 4, 2004, "a day that's become known in military circles as "Black Sunday."

Kate is Kevin's twin sister but, from the surface level, the complete opposite of him." Mandy Moore, Milo Ventimiglia, Justin Hartley, Sterling K. Brown and Ron Cephas Jones also star.
