The title of the series is a nod to Jackson’s favorite curse word. Not much has been revealed about the series, except for the oddly-written logline which doesn’t really offer much explanation. Here’s what it says:

“Samuel L. Jackson and Ryan Reynolds love each other. More accurately, Ryan loves Sam. When asked for comment on his feelings for Ryan, Sam said ‘tell them I couldn’t be reached for comment.’ When a minor mishap causes Sam to become Ryan’s primary caregiver, s— gets weird. Ryan is delighted to spend all of his time with Sam. Sam couldn’t be reached for comment.”

The series comes from showrunners Jim and Brian Kehoe, who were the writers behind the film Blockers. The two also act as the executive producers of the show, alongside Reynolds and Jackson. The show is produced by Anonymous Content and Maximum Effort, with Titmouse serving as its animation studio.

Reynolds and Jackson first starred together in The Hitman’s Bodyguard, a fil, about a bodyguard who must protect a hitman who will be testifying in the International Criminal Court. A sequel is slated to release next year.
