Samantha Aucoin and Jana Morrison have been cast as the leads in SYFY's upcoming series "Astrid & Lilly Save the World."

Aucoin will play Lilly who is sweet-natured and intuitive with a passion for investigative photography. Morrison will play Astrid who is bold and unfiltered with a knack for "sciencey" gadgets. Together, their friendship proves that being classically unpopular is actually pretty damn cool.

Aucoin's recording debut was on the album "What is Christmas For." Currently writing original music for herself and others, she wrote and recorded the power anthem "Hip Hop, Santa Bop."

ASTRID & LILLY SAVE THE WORLD

High school is hard enough when you're different, but when outcast BFFs Astrid and Lilly accidentally crack open a portal to a terrifyingly quirky monster dimension, it gets a lot more complicated. It's up to them to vanquish the creepy creatures and save the world, becoming the badass heroes they were meant to be. That is, if they can survive the horrors of high school.

The 10-episode series is set to start production this fall.

"Astrid & Lilly Save the World" was written by Noelle Stehman and Betsy Van Stone, who executive produce along with Lance Samuels, Daniel Iron and Samantha Levine. Blue Ice Pictures will produce.

"This world isn't just made up of one type of person and representation on screen matters," said Stehman and Van Stone. "Astrid and Lilly will hopefully help remind us that heroes come from all walks of life. There's an effervescent charm to Jana and Samantha that immediately captivated us, and their chemistry was undeniable. We can't wait to see these talented actors take on the roles of Astrid and Lilly to save the world!"
