Here’s the series synopsis: “Set in 1990, ‘The Corps’ is about Cameron, a bullied, gay high school student who joins the Marine Corps with his straight best friend, Ray — a dangerous move when being gay in the military meant jail time or worse. As these two friends plunge into Marine Corps boot camp, where the landmines are both literal and metaphorical, they join a platoon of young men on a harrowing journey of transformation.”

Miles will star as Cameron, who is “a charming underdog — a gay, bullied teenager living in a chaotic home with his narcissistic mom — he impulsively joins the Marines with his straight best friend in hopes that he’ll finally be made into a ‘real man.’”

Also starring in the comedic drama series are Vera Farmiga as his mom, Barbara Cope, Max Parker as Sgt. Sullivan and Liam Oh as Ray McCaffey, Cameron’s ride or die.

Barbara Cope is “a chameleon — always on the run from the consequences of her actions — but she becomes unmoored when her son Cameron leaves her for the Marine Corps.”

Sgt Sullivan is described as “the consummate elite Recon Marine, has been decorated for valor on numerous top-secret missions, but struggles to keep his own secret hidden. Haunted by his past, Sullivan sees himself in Cameron and tries to prepare him for the same personal war he’ll face beyond boot camp.”

Ray McCaffey is “Cameron’s ride or die and the son of a strict Marine father. Ray carries the pressure of having to be best at all times, but when boot camp shakes his faith in himself, he is forced to reevaluate his life’s trajectory.’

Also cast in the series are Cedrick Cooper as Staff Sgt McKinnon; Ana Ayora as Capt. Fajardo; Angus O’Brien as Hicks; Dominic Goodman as Nash; Kieron Moore as Slovacek; Nicholas Logan as Sgt Howitt; Rico Paris as Santos; Blake Burt as John Bowman; Logan Gould as Mo Mason; Zach Roerig as Sgt Knox; Johnathan Nieves as Ochoa; Brandon Tyler Moore as Cody Bowman; Ivan Hoey Jr as Benjy; Anthony Marble as Harlan; and Joy Osmanski as Ji-Yeong.
