Creators Daniel Levy and his father Eugene Levy put together this TV sitcom production that spawned from Daniel pondering about this plausible situation: "I had been watching some reality TV at the time and was concentrating on what would happen if one of these wealthy families would lose everything. Would the Kardashians still be the Kardashians without their money?"
