Development[edit]

It's an optimistic look at how the loss of a friend is the impetus for the other seven to finally start living, to make a promise to him and to themselves to finally be honest about what's really going on,... I know in my own life, my friend's passing is a constant reminder to keep things in perspective.

—Creator D. J. Nash, creator on the underlying themes of the series.[17]

On August 18, 2017, ABC landed a series titled A Million Little Things with a put pilot commitment, to be written by D. J. Nash, who will serve as executive producer alongside Aaron Kaplan and Dana Honor. The series was described as "being in the tone of The Big Chill," with the title stemming from the popular adage, "Friendship isn't a big thing – it's a million little things."[17] Nash came up with the idea for the series following his single-camera comedy pilot Losing It. He said that "Sometimes in comedy, you have to apologize for adding drama, which is why I was so thrilled to see ABC's passion for a drama that has comedy".[17] ABC officially ordered the series to pilot in January 2018,[18] and the show was officially picked up to series on May 9, 2018.[2] The series is produced by ABC Studios and Kapital Entertainment.[2]
