Besides Cheadle, Rannells and Hill, the series also stars Paul Scheer (The League). The list of guest stars is long and legion, including Yassir Lester (Making History), Horatio Sanz (Glow) and Michael James Scott (Aladdin on Broadway), with recurring guest stars Casey Wilson (Happy Endings), Ken Marino (Wet Hot American Summer), and Kurt Braunohler (Bunk). Bruce Dern (Big Love), Melissa Rauch (The Big Bang Theory), Julie Hagerty (Airplane), Kadeem Hardison (A Different World), Eugene Cordero (Kong: Skull Island), Vanessa Bell Calloway (Shameless), Tim Russ (iCarly) and Jason Michael Snow (The Book of Mormon) also have signed on as guest stars.

The series, which is a co-production between Showtime and Sony Pictures Television, comes from Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (Preacher, Future Man) who executive produce and directed the pilot. David Caspe (Happy Endings) and Jordan Cahan (My Best Friend’s Girl) serve as executive producers and showrunners.
