Seth Rogen will serve as the series’ executive producer. It will be released on behalf of Lionsgate by Caviar. NBCUniversal Television and Streaming president of scripted content Lisa Katz discussed the strange new addition to the Peacock lineup.
“This truly unique series … begins with betrayal and quickly becomes an epic, hilarious, action-packed journey. We know Peacock audiences will be hooked by this unpredictable mystery that examines a complex man on a remarkable journey.”
