Tiya Sircar, best known for her roles in 'The Internship', '17 Again', 'Star Wars Rebels', and 'The Good Place' plays the role of Kate Bradley in 'Good Sam', a reporter with a passion for risky, "bummer beat" stories as her editor can be heard saying in the trailer. Fires, car crashes, Black Friday riots at the mall -- these are a few of Bradley's favorite things. Mark Camacho ('I'm Not There') plays the role of David, while Brittany Drisdelle ('Summer Villa') appears as Hostess and Chad Connell ('Prom Wars') as Eric Hayes. 

The film also stars Marco Grazzini as Jack Hansen, Jesse Camacho as Josh, Kenny Wong as Ed, Elana Dunkelman as Lauren, and Daniela Sandiford as Alex. 

Plot: Spreading the good spirit

Based on the book by Dete Meserve, 'Good Sam' revolves around New York City TV news reporter Kate Bradley who sets out to report on a positive story instead of her usual risky, "bummer beat" stories. She is tasked with a feel-good story that may challenge her own cynicism and has to investigate a good samaritan aka "Good Sam" who mysteriously leaves $100,000 in cash on seemingly random doorsteps. The good sam spirit seems to be spreading too. "People say New York City is a tough place. But thanks to Good Sam, I see more kindness between strangers," Bradley can be heard saying towards the end of the trailer.
