In an interview with TooFab, Jeffrey Dean Morgan said that the idea for the show came to him when he guest-starred on Talking Dead remotely after the pandemic shutdowns started. He said: “I just had this thought that there was something that maybe we could do, we could put together. I didn’t know what it was, but I emailed the head of AMC and I said, ‘Hey, what do you think about doing something — and I’m not sure exactly what it is — but, you know, we could kind of talk to our friends and check in, see how people are doing, the people that are doing good out there and doing something with the coronavirus. Check in with them and see exactly what they’re doing.”
Morgan said the idea was green-lit within an hour. Hilarie Burton told TooFab that she didn’t know about the idea until someone else at AMC texted her about it.
Right now things are pretty chaotic at their home, Morgan told TooFab. But that will make the show even more interesting and entertaining.
Tonight’s episode is going to feature Jensen Ackles, from Supernatural (where he stars as main character Dean Winchester), and his wife Danneel. The two actually set up Burton and Morgan. Local doctor and friend Dr. Sharagim Kemp will also be a guest tonight.
In an interview with TV Insider, the couple said they got sucked into Tiger King on Netflix and they’re watching a ton of kid stuff, like Frozen and The Lion King.
Morgan and Burton said they’d been wanting to do something in the reality world for years, and now the opportunity has arrived.
