HOW THEY MADE HER) (Quibi) - Don Cheadle, Emily Mortimer and Helena Howard are set to star in the sci-fi drama series on the short-form video platform, about "a high school senior who can't seem to shake the feeling that something about her just isn't right.

Shim, Robert Ben Garant and Kevin Healey co-created the half-hour, which has a pilot order at the network. Propagate's Ben Silverman, Howard Owens and Kevin Healey also serve as executive producers. Huebel will play Steve "Crash" Byrd, "the owner and leader of the misfit crew of Chasers"; while Shim plays Sugar Ho, "an Americanized immigrant and exotic dancer who moonlights as a Chaser."

(Deadline.com)
