The series is executive produced by Annapurna Television's Megan Ellison, Sue Naegle and Ali Krug.

Brownstein's Search and Destroy joins several comedys in pilot mode on Hulu including Kat Dennings' Dollhouse, Carlton Cuse's Locke and Key, When the Street Lights Go On and others. Mindy Kaling's hit comedy series The Mindy Project concluded on Hulu back in November 2017.

No lead actress has been attached to Search and Destroy and no word whether Brownstein will star in the comedy.
