In October 2019, Disney+ ordered a ten episode hour-long dramedy based on the original idea by Brad Garrett who pitched the idea to David E. Kelley and developed it along with Dean Lorey. The trio along with Bill D'Elia were to executive produce with ABC Signature. Lorey was to write the script and D'Elia to direct the first episode.
Big Shot began in November 2019. In March 2020, production was suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Production for the series also shut down for a day in November after a positive COVID-19 test that later resulted in being a false positive, and for the rest of 2020 in December. Filming resumed in January 2021 in Los Angeles.
