    I probably would have passed on this one until Sunita Mani signed on. Now I’ll definitely be checking it out. She may be best known for GLOW and Mr. Robot, but she is friggin’ hilarious with her deadpan delivery. She will fit in perfectly with this cast. She was one of the few highlights of the otherwise forgettable “No Response”.
