Series a Reflection of the Recent College Admissions Scandal

Queller and Rovner executive produce alongside Berlanti Prods.’ Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter and the original series’ writer Hyun Mi Yoo, director Hyuntak Jo and executive producer Joon Suh Park. Warner Bros. TV, where Queller, Rovner and Berlanti are under overall deals, is the studio.
