Paramount+ first ordered an espionage drama series created by John Requa and Glenn Ficarra and starring Kiefer Sutherland from CBS Studios in May 2021, and the series title Rabbit Hole was announced in February 2022. Rob Yang was the first co-star added to the cast, followed by Charles Dance, Meta Golding, Enid Graham, Jason Butler Harner, and Walt Klink. Wendy Makkena joined the cast as well in September 2022.
The series was inspired by political film thrillers, including Three Days of the Condor, The Manchurian Candidate, Marathon Man, and The Parallax View, according to Sutherland. Requa and Ficarra describe it as a "paranoid thriller".
