Episode 6: "So He Looked Like Dad. It Was Just Dinner, Right?"

Episode 6, directed by Shameless actress Emmy Rossum, sees Ozark's Julia Garner, who recently won an Emmy for her role in the Netflix show, plays Maddy, who agrees to date a man who reminds her of her father. That older man is Peter, portrayed by Shea Whigham of American Hustle and Homecoming.
