Shim, Robert Ben Garant and Kevin Healey co-created the half-hour, which has a pilot order at the network. Propagate's Ben Silverman, Howard Owens and Kevin Healey also serve as executive producers. Huebel will play Steve "Crash" Byrd, "the owner and leader of the misfit crew of Chasers"; while Shim plays Sugar Ho, "an Americanized immigrant and exotic dancer who moonlights as a Chaser."

(Deadline.com)
