Variety shares that the show "centers around Pierce's character Marco, a gender non-conforming recent high school graduate who uses makeup and fashion to let his queer self bloom.

On his own for the first time, this is Marco's chance to live, love, and grow to understand what it really means to be queer."
Pierce is previously known for his work on FULLER HOUSE. The CW Television Network features the hit series Riverdale, as well as Black Lightning, The Flash, Arrow, Supergirl, DC's Legends of Tomorrow, Supernatural, Jane The Virgin, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, The 100, iZombie, Dynasty.
