Hailing from series creators Zach Baylin (King Richard) and Kate Susman (The Order), the one-hour drama centers on “the owner of a New York City hotspot (Law)” who “allows his turbulent brother (Bateman) back in his life,” according to the official logline. By doing so, “he opens the door to escalating dangers that threaten to bring down everything he’s built.”

Rounding out the cast are Cleopatra Coleman (The Last Man on Earth), Amaka Okafor (Bodies), Ṣọpẹ́ Dìrísù (Gangs of London) and Dagmara Dominczyk (Succession).

Neither an episode count nor a release date has been announced as of press time.
