The series stars Guled Abdi, Vance Banzo, Tim Blair and Franco Nguyen, who have worked for several years in stage-based sketch comedy under the name TallBoyz II Men.[2] They were previously best known for their stage show A 6ix NNNNNN Revue,[3] which won the award for Best Comedy at the 2018 Toronto Fringe Festival.[4] The title of A 6ix NNNNNN Revue was an allusion to the Toronto alternative weekly newspaper Now, whose music, film, literature and theatre critics rate works on a scale of one to five N's instead of stars.[3]

The series is produced by Bruce McCulloch and Susan Cavan.[2]
