Dill portrays Juniper Purifoy, the wife of Hunter Purifoy (Bosworth), owner of Purifoy Pharmaceuticals.
Pesi is Greg Peters, an aggressive, self-confident, real estate developer who’s trying to get Rondell Lancaster (Brely Evans) to sell him the family restaurant so he can use the block in an upcoming development plan.
