Jordan plays rebel pilot Julian Chase, Fanning is expert mech pilot Miranda Worth who is Chase’s love interest, and Yamadera is Kazu Iida who is a fresh recruit fighting alongside Jordan’s character.
“Gen:Lock” is slated to premiere in January 2019 on Rooster Teeth’s subscription service which starts at $4.99 per month. Gray G. Haddock serves as series showrunner.
