The Story

Petey’s been an assistant at a big city fashion magazine for eight days, but she’s a total girl boss. Is Petey just another dimwitted 20-something member of the Euphoria generation (cough: a Gen Z’er) who is going to unwittingly change the world? We’ll have to watch and find out.

Who’s Who of Praise Petey

Annie Murphy voices the role of Petey, the young lady who leaves her crumbling-down city life to take over her dad’s cult town New Utopia. Annie brings that upbeat 20-something every-girl energy to Petey that we seriously love to hate. Annie was born in Ottawa, Canada, in 1986, making her a millennial. With her long golden locks and easy laugh she easily plays the gorgeous ditz – like Alexis in Schitt’s Creek – but in real life, she’s kinda down to earth and normal. If you’re new to Annie, binge Shitt’s Creek and then go directly to Black Mirror Season 6, Joan is Awful. IG: annefrances

John Cho voices the role of Bandit, Petey’s makeout partner and supercrush who lives in New Utopia but isn’t drinking the kool-aid (yet?). John is probably best known for being Harold in the boy-favorite Harold & Kumar series of movies, or maybe he’s burned in your brain as MILF Guy #2 from American Pie. John started his acting career when his day job was an English teacher, so it makes sense that he’s now finding joy writing chapter books for young readers (Troublemaker, published March 2022). IG: johnthecho
