However, this particular team, under Oz's masterful manipulations, often takes extremely dubious means to win clients for their protection services.Created by Adam F. Goldberg and Seth Gordon, the comedy boasts Adam Sandler as executive producer, along with his aptly named Happy Madison Productions. Slater will also serve as a producer.moreless
