The “almost completely true” story is based on the courtship, relationship, and marriage of Mariette Hartley (Ride the High Country, The Incredible Hulk TV series) and her husband, actor/producer Jerry Sroka (Godspell).

Directed and executive produced by Don Scardino, executive produced by Hartley and Sroka, co-executive produced Matthew Bennett, produced by Jeff Hardwick and Tim Mann, associate produced by Dana L. Williams.
