In Canada, the second season will debut on linear network CBC and its streaming platform CBC Gem. It will stream exclusively on Paramount+ in the US, UK, Australia, Latin America, Brazil, Italy, France and Germany.

The series is created by Julie Puckrin, who also serves as exec producer alongside Gillian Hormel and Piazza Entertainment principal Vanessa Piazza. Paramount Global Content Distribution handles international distribution outside Canada.
