Yeun and Wong both serve as executive producers on the project, alongside Sung Jin, Jake Schreier, Alli Reich and Ravi Nandan.
Along with The Walking Dead, Yeun is known for roles in films Burning, Minari and Nope. Wong is a comedian and actor, who previously worked with Yeun on the animated series Tuca & Bertie.
Speaking to the Independent, Yeun said he believes the show says a lot about society. “I just see a giant mirror up to all of us,” the actor said. “We’re living in a lot of isolation, building a lot of stories up in our head. Maybe all we really want to do is connect to somebody.”
“They’re letting walls down,” Wong said. “They’re seeing each other at their ugliest. There’s a deep acceptance that’s obviously very cathartic and very necessary. I think that’s the most unexpected and beautiful part about our show.”
