The trailer shows the lead pair haphazardly packing their respective belongings and meeting up at the Grand Central Station. "Who does this?," asks Wever's character, when she realises the hastiness of her decision to leave everything behind. The reason which drove them to uproot their ordinary life was due to a pact the two had made 17 years ago in college.

"This is unforgivable," Wever can be heard saying. As Gleeson asks her, "Really? People forgive all sorts. Don't they?" The trailer shows them finally coming to terms with impulsive choices, even trying to have an intimate moment interrupted by a train bed, and more.

According to IndieWire, the first season of the show will see the lead be joined by a host of guest stars including Waller-Bridge as a woman named Laurel they meet on their journey; Tamara Podemsky as a police detective named Babe Cloud; and Archie Punjabi as Gleeson's former PA Fiona. They will also be joined by Rich Sommer, who will be seen as Wever's husband.
