On April 14, 2015, Sony announced that the stop-motion animated series was being developed by Crackle, which Bryan Cranston would voice and executive produce with his Moon Shot Entertainment.[9] Thirteen episodes were being produced, and also starring Seth Green, Keegan-Michael Key, and Jillian Bell.[9] Matthew Senreich and Zeb Wells wrote and would executive produce the series, while other executive producers would be Green, John Harvatine IV, Eric Towner, and James Degus, while Stoopid Buddy Stoodios would produce.[9] The first trailer was released on July 9, 2015, and the other cast included Senreich, Wells, Heidi Gardner, Tom Root, Tucker Gilmore, and some other guest stars.[10]

For the shows 2nd season, Arby's signed a product placement deal with the series as part of a broader deal with Crackle.[11]
