Starring Mark Hapka (“Days of Our Lives”) and Jessica Rothe (“Next Time on Lonny”), “Parallel” tells the story of an estranged brother and sister who are reunited when their father mysteriously disappears.

It’s directed by Christopher Leone, who has directed three other Fox Digital projects including “Suit Up” and “Wolfpack of Reseda.”
