Talking about "Extrapolation", Burns said, "The only thing we know for sure about the future is that we are all going there together -- and we're taking with us our hopes, our fears, our appetites, our creativity, our capacity for love and our predilection to cause pain. These are the same tools that storytellers have been using since the beginning of time. Our show is just using them to keep time from running out."

Ellenberg, Greg Jacobs, Dorothy Fortenberry and Lindsey Springer are also attached to exec produce the series. The series is now under production.
