While the show has done well in the UK for the BBC, it was not a ratings performer for NBC, peaking with 2.23m viewers for its penultimate episode.

Warner Unscripted Television president Mike Darnell exec produced the series, alongside McIntyre and Brooke Karzen, as well as Hungry Bear Media founder Dan Baldwin.
