The program featured Eric Close as Michael Wiseman and Dennis Haysbert as Dr. Theodore Morris, but its cancellation would leave them free to move on to their most defining roles - Close as an agent on ''Series/WithoutATrace'' and Haysbert as President David Palmer on ''Series/TwentyFour''.

** In another episode, Michael accidentally gets his daughter to think that she was contacted by an angel. Theo tells him to let her know that she'll appear in a park at a certain time. Later, when Michael asks how it's going to happen, Theo tells him that it's not. The point is to make his daughter appear crazy to the public, so they stop believing her story and prevent them from accidentally stumbling on the project. Naturally, Michael hates him for that.
