Wilson is executive producing. Emmy winner Rene Balcer will be writer and showrunner and will executive produce alongside Wilson and Berner, with Lee serving as a producer. Wilson is repped by UTA and attorney Bob Wallerstein; Balcer is with UTA and Don Walerstein; Berner is with Verve and Jeanne Newman.
