The actor said that as a couple, he and his wife "divide and conquer" when it comes to parenting.

"In the show, I lose my wife and it’s like losing your arm," he told TV Insider. "All of a sudden, you’re responsible for all of these duties and you’re wearing all the hats now."

One of Billy's motivation to pitch the show to Netflix and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation was parenting three teenage children.

"We’re attempting to define what it means to be a family today and you need to get into all the stuff that kids get into," he said.

"You need to get into possibly violence, definitely sex, definitely drugs, kids getting arrested. It’s going to be a modern day, contemporary look at what parents and children are struggling with."

Baldwin, who was a fashion model before starting his acting career, splits his time between an estate in Santa Barbara, California and another in Bedford Corners, New York.
