The project was a holdover from the 2020 pilot season that was delayed due to the pandemic. It hailed from the team of Shawn Vance, Daril Fannin, and Jimmy Kimmel. In the show, when a Green Beret (Vance) returns home to Texas from military service, he and his family struggle with the challenges of adopting his new brother, a 12-year-old Russian boy.
Along with Vance, the pilot starred Bruce Campbell, Wendie Malick, Maxim Swinton, Tate Moore, Sofia Pernas, and Reyn Doi. It was inspired by a true story.
