UK show creator Nick Fisher posed a unique challenge: he wanted to sell an American version of his BBC Two series with the added condition that he create and write the pilot prototype.

Quinn Media Management coached Fisher on the intricacies of the Los Angeles market, developed a hit list of studios and networks, which led three days of pitch meetings. ABC Studios expressed interest and made an offer that would allow him to write the pilot for ABC.

When this version of the show did not end up moving forward, we later made a deal for Fisher and the format with Sony Pictures Television, and added Darren Star (Sex and the City) as showrunner and executive producer. This pilot was produced with Showtime.
