You are correct! The show was originally supposed to be a band of five teenagers and a dog, called Mysteries Five, solving mysteries. Later, one of the teenagers was removed and the dog was given the ability to talk. I'm glad everything turned out great as well! :)

Yeah it was crazy seeing what the original pitch was and how a few key people came in to re-tool it, it was almost SO different. And honestly, I really don't know if the original pitch would've been as impactful as what we eventually got, it could've ended up being a 1 season show and then......that was it. Never heard from again.

I have wondered that as well! It’s crazy to think that the show was that close to being not as impactful as it was. Clearly we got very lucky! :)
