Development[edit]

On July 28, 2018, it was announced that AMC had given the production a series order. The series was created by Jason Segel who is also set to executive produce alongside Scott Rudin, Eli Bush, and Garrett Basch. Production companies involved with the series are slated to include AMC Studios.[3][5][6] The series is based off original stories and content created by Nonchalance for a series known as Games of Nonchalance, which was produced in San Francisco and Oakland, California during 2010.[7][8] The title of the show comes from an element of Act 2[9] which featured a pirate radio station that broadcast in Dolores Park, in the Mission District of San Francisco. [10]

Casting[edit]

Alongside the series order announcement in July 2018, it was reported that Jason Segel would star in the series.[3] In April 2019, Richard E. Grant, Sally Field and Eve Lindley were added to the cast, with Andre Benjamin joining in July.[11][12]

Filming[edit]

Principal photography for the series commenced in the Philadelphia, Upper Darby Township, Pennsylvania area in July 2019, with filming also expected to take place in Radnor Township, Delaware County, Pennsylvania.[13][3]
