On March 9, 2018, Netflix announced it had ordered a ten-episode season of a show hosted by Norm Macdonald and accompanied by sidekick Adam Eget. Macdonald and Lori Jo Hoekstra were its showrunners and executive producers, alongside K.P. Anderson and Daniel Kellison. Macdonald's production company, Anchor Spud Productions, produced the show in association with Pygmy Wolf Productions and Lionsgate Television.[1][2][3][4] David Letterman jokingly referred to himself as a location scout for the show's press release, but was a creative partner and helped sell the show to Netflix and is credited as "Special Counsel".[5][6][7] It premiered on September 14, 2018.[8][9]

The cast closed each episode by singing the same song Wayne and Shuster used to close their CBC program in the 1970s.[10]
