Ride or Die
A cautious, Prius-driving young intern struggles to impress her new bosses—Dominic Toretto and his famous crew. Based in the Fast & Furious universe, this action comedy zooms past the high-octane heists of Dom’s team and into the world of the harried interns who cover the details, whether it’s getting coffee or asking the dry cleaner how to get brain matter out of white t-shirts.
