Eric Coleman, senior vice president, Original Programming and general manager, Disney Television Animation, said, "Drawing upon their personal experiences, Chris and Shane have created a 'fish-out-of-water' series that consistently delivers stories with big laughs and plenty of heart. We're eager for viewers to get to know the tight-knit Green family and their endearing relationships that will be universally appealing to kids and families."

The series is a part of Disney Channel's GO! Summer special programmes. Following the debut week, new episodes will premiere throughout the summer on Monday and Wednesday mornings. It will also be available on Disney's official YouTube channel.
