The series premiered on February 28, 2013, on the American cable television network Comedy Central.[1] Hoffman, Mike Gibbons, Itay Reiss, Derek Van Pelt, and Judi Brown Marmel serve as the show's executive producers.[2]

The series was not announced for a second season, officially cancelling the series. References to the show on Comedy Central's website have since been removed.
