Niharika Konidela said that the show will connect with all age groups and all sections of audience. This is her first OTT outing in four years. Going by the trailer, she has got a Westernized and semi-Indianized role in the show.

Written by Akshay Poolla, the series also features Harsha Chemudu, Sai Ronak, Akshay Lagusani and Bhavana Sagi. The show is an adaptation of the British comedy series of the same name. The series depicts the relationships and social interactions of "new-age introverts".

True to its original content, the Telugu-language adaptation is about the power of forming online communities in the age of social media. How far the sensibilities of the show will appeal to the Indian viewers has to be seen.
