The Bay is described as The Good Wife meets NYPD Blue, centering on "two newly partnered Chinese-American detectives who strive to overcome their gender, generational and cultural differences as they work to bring justice to their dynamic and ever-changing San Francisco community," per Deadline. The Bay is from Nancy Drew co-executive producer Larry Teng and Wu Assassins writer Yalun Tu. According to Deadline's Nellie Andreeva, "this is a personal project for Teng, a sought-after TV director. Growing up and even as a young adult, Teng was embarrassed being Chinese. While his father wanted to teach him Chinese culture and appreciate Chinese cooking, all he wanted to do was play football, eat pizza and blend in."
