“We tried to write something fun and entertaining, but real, and we’ve landed on a fantastic cast. The idea was to cast against type, to go against grizzled hardened criminals. These are all characters who find themselves in circumstances they are not ready for. We preferred actors who were vulnerable over ‘hardcore’.” – Writers Matthew Kohnen and Sean Kohnen
