In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, producer David E Kelley known for 'Big Little Lies' and 'The Undoing', opened up about the show. "I've loved the books by CJ Box," said Kelley. "Fantastic characters, fantastic setting in Montana. It's a bit of a thriller ride but also a character piece."

He promised that there are going to be some ugly revelations and secrets, along the way. "There's also a lot of dark secrets and ugliness that goes on. So, one moment you'll be leaning in, the next moment not so much. We think of this as a thrill ride, and a great piece of entertainment at 10 o'clock at night. We've got a lot of great characters that you'll come to feel for and care for as the series evolves."
