The show was set up by Mitch Hurwitz, creator of "Arrested Development"; and Eric Tannenbaum and Kim Tannenbaum, from "Two and a Half Men". Hurwitz wrote the first script and decided to take a more supervisory role. Other executive producers will be Bill Oakley and Josh Weinstein, former writers for "The Simpsons". Production of the series stopped during May 2008 due to a contract dispute between the staff and Sony, which resulted in Oakley ending his involvement with the show. Sony refused to offer a contract which operated under the complete terms of the Writers Guild of America. Eventually a compromise was reached and production resumed in June.cite news|url=|title=Bill Oakley exits 'Sit Down, Shut Up'|accessdate=2008-07-28|date=2008-07-16|work=Variety|author=Michael Schneider]

The show will have animation that is set against a live-action backdrop with characters designed by Mo Willems. Rough Draft Studios will provide the animation with directors Peter Avanzino and Rich Moore supervising. Writers for the show include Josh Weinstein, Rich Rinaldi, Aisha Muharrar, Alex Herschlag, Laura Gutin, Dan Fybel, Aaron Ehasz, Michael Colton and John Aboud.
