Series playing out the scenario where successful company founder father dies (potentially) and leaves bickering family with power struggle and management responsibility. Kinda made me think of a non-comedic Arrested Development; all of the dysfunction and ineptitude, but much more at stake. Decent enough watch, but the series was pulled from streaming before we got around to finishing it. 👍
