The origins of the series go back to the Television Critics Association summer 2016 press tour, where Wolf revealed plans for a crime drama series, placed in New York and set in the world of the FBI. Wolf’s original plan was to introduce it on the NBC network as a planted spin-off to his New York crime drama Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, where it was intended to introduce an FBI agent character, but NBC ultimately did not go through with it and the idea was later put on hold for different reasons. It will be Wolf's first drama series to launch on a network other than NBC in 15 years.


On May 16, 2018, the day of scheduling the series for fall 2018, Connie Nielsen, who appeared as Ellen, FBI Special Agent in Charge in the original pilot, was announced to have left the series for unknown reasons.[11][17] It was later revealed that Nielsen’s role would not be recast and that she still appears in the first episode, but that Sela Ward will take over as new character Dana Mosier from episode 2 on, fullfilling a similar role to Nielsen’s character.[18]



In Turkey, the series will be broadcast through the pay broadcaster Digiturk.[19]
