Deadline is reporting that CW small town pilot The Republic of Sarah has cast Landry Bender (Looking for Alaska), New Amsterdam‘s Ian Duff, and Forrest Goodluck (The Miseducation of Cameron Post).
Bender will play preppy and composed Bella, the mayor’s daughter who begins to question her “popular girl” status after an unpleasant sexual encounter.
Duff is set as damaged Grover, a straightforward, blue collar guy who works at the local diner and has a mutual crush on Sarah. However, his painful past keeps him from pursuing anything romantic.
Goodluck will portray shy, introspective Tyler, whose years growing up on a Native American reservation have toughened him up. When he begins working alongside Sarah, he makes an unexpected connection with Bella.
They join a cast that includes Luke Mitchell,
