The project previously had "an off-cycle commitment for further investment towards series production." Ian Sander and Kim Moses are executive producing alongside showrunner Jon Cowan.

There, he begins writing about his suburban friends and neighbors on the cul-de-sac in the style of an anthropologist who's stumbled on an undiscovered tribe." Said effort comes from Universal Television with the studio-based David Janollari also on board to executive produce. (Deadline.com)
