The Netflix high-school romantic comedy Tall Girl revolves around an about 6-foot-1 teen Jodi and the problems that come from literally standing out from the rest.

Set in the charming Crescent City, Tall Girl was entirely filmed in New Orleans.

Ava Michelle reprises her role as Jodi Kreyman. Sabrina Carpenter (who also starred in a Netflix film, Work It) plays her best friend, Harper Kreyman. Griffin Gluck (Gabe in the series Locke and Key) is Jack Dunkleman.

The main cast is completed by Jodi's parents, Steve Zahn (The White Lotus) as Richie Kreyman and Angela Kinsey (The Office) as Helaine Kreyman.
