I watched out of curiosity and I thought it was weak. To your point, Hollywood has dozens of scripts and proposals for shows shelved somewhere and they pull those when they need something to fill a gap. I would not be surprised if this is the case here (it could be my bias, since I thought it was bellow average). With Covid, things got out of pace, out of rhythm. The studios find a script and assemble a cast, without caring too much if the show will succeed or not. They just need them for a season, maybe even a half season. If they fail, it is all part of the calculations, so no big losses.
