The series is executive produced by Alan Ball (HBO's "True Blood" and "Six Feet Under"), Greg Yaitanes ("House," "Lost"), Peter Macdissi ("Towelhead," HBO's "Six Feet Under"), Jonathan Tropper (author of the New York Times bestseller "This Is Where I Leave You") and David Schickler (author of "Kissing in Manhattan" and "Sweet and Vicious").

The scripts were conceived and written by Tropper and Schickler. Emmy(R)-winner Yaitanes directs, with additional directors to be announced.
