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.

Great pace, well directed, flaky screenplay, cheesy acting
4 April 2018 | by TopDawgCriticSee all my reviews

This show is losing my interest from the flaky screenplay/writing and moreso the cheesy acting. The overly ambitious 'God complexes' are annoying. Susannah Flood's character is unbearable, and to portray that everyone finds her attractive is ridiculous. Some of the dialog makes me cringe "you literally broke my brain"... really? I'll give a few more episodes a chance but unless the writing improves and the actors tone it down to a realistic level, I can only see my current 6/10 rating going down.
