After his previous show, Seinfeld, stopped production, Michael Richards reteamed with three former Seinfeld writers/producers in a comedy caper about a private eye in Los Angeles. When originally conceived, Richards wanted to differentiate his character from Kramer, the role he immortalized on Seinfeld. However, the network disagreed and decided that character would share characteristics with his previous role. The show received generally negative reviews and was canceled within two months due to poor ratings.
