The series is written and produced by Katie Lovejoy and executive produced by John Glenn. Additionally, the title is a play on the phrase “Miranda warning”, which is the right to remain silent warning given by police to criminal suspects.
If the pilot is successful, the series will be commissioned and go to air this September.
