Trivia

In the pilot, Britne Oldford was cast as Sandra Black (renamed Bell) and Lyndon Smith was cast as Allison Anderson (renamed Adams). However, both roles were recast with other actresses. After reshooting the pilot with the actresses replacing Oldford and Smith, Britt Robertson and Jasmin Savoy Brown respectively, and having already shot the second episode, production on the show was temporarily shut down in mid-September 2017 in order to rewrite existing scripts for the rest of the season to adjust the show to Robertson and Brown's new dynamic.

User Reviews

 
Smart witty funny

I enjoy being entertained, having to pay attention, listen or think a little so for me, this delivers. The script was a little bit like Decaf Gilmore Girls, I like the blend of old and new talent, as well as some original characters mixed in with TOTAL doppelgängers (see if you can find the Paris GG person).

It works for me, except for one sad stereotyped if unavoidable case ending that probably got written months and months before our current political climate is what it is. Overall very well done.
