"A reality tv cop with a traumatic past and an anarchist hacker vegan kid hook up at a party and the world freaks the hell out," Kot told Newsarama about the comic book series in 2018. "We're in the New California, the second civil war already happened, and the world is weird and not okay. But there is love. Can it survive? Can it blossom and thrive?"

Harris is best-known for the Broadway play Slave Play, and co-wrote the upcoming film Zola.
