“Chris is a fantastic talent, and we wish we could convince him to keep doing the series, but we understand his desire to focus more on his music and other things in his life,” said Showtime entertainment prexy Bob Greenblatt.

Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider (“Northern Exposure”) exec produce and write the series, which is also exec produced by Isaak and Phoenix Entertainment’s Mike Medavoy and Arnold Messer.
