The project was originally being developed for Cinemax, but it appears the network chose to pass on the project as it looks to now be nearing a home at Amazon. According to the report, the streaming service has ordered a script from writer Eric Kripke with the possibility of a series order to follow. Should the series be picked up, Rogen and Goldberg will direct the pilot. The duo, who are also behind AMC's Preacher, will also serve as executive producers on the project.
