Kate Robin (Six Feet Under) wrote the script and will serve as executive producer with Leoni and R.J. Cutler, the documentarian who created the 2008 fashion documentary The September Issue.

Spring/Fall will mark Leoni's return to television. She last appeared as a guest on The X-Files in 2000 after the end of her NBC comedy series The Naked Truth in 1998.
