James Duff, the producer of the series, saw Sosie Bacon, daughter of Kyra Sedgwick, perform in Loverboy. He was impressed and wanted to write Bacon into the series; however, Sedgwick was opposed to the idea, insistent on her daughter not getting involved with acting. Eventually Duff says he was able to get Sedgwick to agree to Bacon having a brief role provided it did not interfere with her education.
