“Every year during Thanksgiving, millions of Americans search for a distraction from their families,” said Powell. “Bethany and I are proud to present a series that provides just that.”

Elizabeth Rohrbaugh executive produced the series, along with Justin Killion, Complex Network’s head of programming and development, and development executive Cory Stern. Alex Bach is producer.
