The series was created by Michael Oates Palmer for HBO, to debut during the 2011–12 television season. The pilot was going to be set in set in South Florida, and was planned to center on Joey Perrone, a woman who takes revenge on her cheating husband after he attempted to murder her.[8] However, the product ultimately was scrapped and since has been redesigned for The CW for the 2018–19 season. [7]

On January 30, 2018, The CW officially ordered the Skinny Dip reboot to pilot. The redeveloped script has been described as "a woman who teams up with a jaded ex-cop after her husband tried to murder her on what she thought was a romantic cruise to celebrate their second wedding anniversary."[1]


On February 28, 2018, Matt Barr was announced to star in the pilot as Mick Stranahan, a 'former police detective who was removed from the force, who lives alone on a deserted island with a nice dog;' and enjoys being off the grid. His casting position comes in second place to his position on Valor.[2] The next day, Ben Aldridge was cast as Chaz Perrone, an 'environmentalist' who, while celebrating his anniversary with his wife aboard a cruise ship, promptly throws her overboard.[4] Throughout March, the rest of the cast was filled up, with Sarah Wright Olsen set to star as Joey Perrone, who is thrown overboard by her husband, Chaz, however she miraculously survives the ordeal, and begins to plot her revenge.[3] Alongside, Brent Sexton is set to star as Juan Carlos Rojo, known to his friends as 'Red', K.J. Smith has been set to star as Karla Rolvaag, a detective investigating Joey's disappearance, whom after she interviews Chaz, she immediately gets the feeling that something’s not quite right,[5] and Richard Esteras has been headlined for the role of Earl Edward O'Toole, an man involved in some dark undertakings, who also happens to be a vicious killer.[6]


Filming for the series will take place in New Orleans, Louisiana.[9] Production began on the pilot on March 22, 2018, and wrapped on April 7, 2018.[10]
