CBS placed a series order in May 2012. The series was expected to premiere as a midseason entry during the 2012–13 television season. However, on December 6, 2012, CBS revealed that its midseason schedule did not include the series. The series would be the last project for co-creator Alan Kirschenbaum, who committed suicide on October 26, 2012.
Due to Kirschenbaum's suicide, the network has yet to decide the fate of the series.
