The series:

  • The Danza: Otto is played by Otto Sanchez.
  • Dueling Shows: Vanished had a similar sounding premise (though the shows were different) and aired at the same time on a different network. Neither of them survived beyond a half season, even though both of them weren't really set up as shows that could go on beyond a single season.
  • Fake American: Linus Roache as Agent Archer.
  • What Could Have Been: It's quite apparent watching the finale that end conclusion isn't what was intended and clearly just quickly put together resolution for the series.
