Tammy Sagher and Jonathan Ames, the creator of the series, co-wrote the screenplay. It was directed by Troy Miller, who gets the cast to do the great job they always do. Jonathan Schwartzman, Zach Galifianakis and Ted Danson are the sole reason for watching. Guest star included a good Kevin Bacon, not a man to see on television often. Mary Kay Place, Sarita Choudhury, Ajai Naidu, and Kristen Wiig, contributed to the fun.
