Some have achieved success, others are struggling in their careers and relationships, but all of them feel stuck in life.

ProductionEdit

A Million Little Things was created by DJ Nash. On August 18, 2017, the show landed on ABC with a put pilot commitment, with Nash serving as writer and executive producer. Aaron Kaplan and Dana Honor from Kapital Entertainment were also announced as executive producers.[1]

The show's title comes from the popular adage "Friendship isn’t a big thing – it’s a million little things", and was described as "being in the tone of The Big Chill".[1] Being his first hourlong project, Nash explained that he got the idea for A Million Little Things following his project Losing It, and that the show was loosely based on a personal experience:

It's an optimistic look at how the loss of a friend is the impetus for the other seven to finally start living, to make a promise to him and to themselves to finally be honest about what's really going on... I know in my own life, my friend's passing is a constant reminder to keep things in perspective.[1]

On January 26, 2018, the show received a pilot order by ABC.[2] Casting for the main cast started in February 2018 with David Giuntoli,[3] and ended the next month with Lizzy Greene.[4] Shooting for the pilot took place from March 13 to March 30, 2018,[5][6] in Vancouver.[7] It was directed by James Griffiths, who also serves as executive producer for the series.[8]

On May 9, 2018, the show was officially picked up to series, and was announced to be co-produced by ABC Studios and Kapital Entertainment.[9] In June 2018, it was revealed that the show would stay in Vancouver for its filming.[10]
