It is produced by UK indie LA Productions (Broken, Moving On) in association with BBC1 Wales and BBC1 Daytime. Acorn Media Enterprises, Acorn’s UK development subsidiary, is the North American and Australian coproduction partner on the series, with the show set to appear on the RLJ Entertainment-owned streamer as an Acorn original.

It will air on BBC1 Wales and BBC1 Daytime in 2019. German distributor ZDF Enterprises has distribution rights for the rest of the world.
