About her character, Amanda: she is in the middle of the three sisters, Christie and Billie, and is a driven woman in her 20s, living out her dream of being a marketing maven for an up-and-coming company that happens to be developing an animated sci-fi show and accompanying toyline. She's been dating her boyfriend Dan Roth for many years, and at the start of 9:04 AM, she and the company (and Dan) have moved back to West Palm Beach, Florida to team up with an up-and-coming marketing agency. Amanda and Dan's move back home sets off many of the events seen in 9:04 AM. She works closely with Justin, and is becoming very good friends with him.
