The drama starred Gabrielle Union, Jessica Alba, Duane Martin, Zach Gilford, Ryan McPartlin, Sophie Reynolds and Ernie Hudson.

Sony Pictures Television, Jerry Bruckheimer Television and 2.0 Entertainment produced.

The drama originated as a pilot at NBC. It failed to earn a series pickup at the broadcast network but was shopped by producer Sony. It landed at Spectrum as the service's first original scripted series. The first season debuted in late spring 2019 and quickly earned a second season renewal. The series was expected to debut Season 2 this summer but was postponed due to the racial protests following the death of George Floyd. Moreover, the first season was licensed to FOX to air this fall as filler programming due to the coronavirus pandemic limiting available programming for the broadcast networks.
