The pilot revolves around a group of four men who carpool to work. Goss plays Gracen, while O’Connell stars as dentist Laird and Minor is aboard as Aubrey. They join previously announced cast members Faith Ford, T.J. Miller and Allison Munn.

The show comes from ABC TV Studio and DreamWorks TV. Bruce McCulloch, Justin Falvey, Darryl Frank and David Miner are executive producers, while Anthony and Joe Russo are directing.
