La Brea, which received a straight-to-series order after production on its 2020 pilot was derailed by the pandemic, had a solid launch in fall 2021 with a 10-episode first season, earning a 14-episode second season renewal. It was then affected by the impending WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes, leaving NBC to opt for a shorter season and releasing actors so they’d be open to take other jobs.

For Season 3, creator/showrunner David Appelbaum executive produces with Chris Hollier, Peter Traugott, Rachel Kaplan, Avi Nir and Alon Shtruzman. La Brea is produced by Universal Television and Australia’s Matchbox Pictures, both divisions of Universal Studio Group, in association with Keshet Studios.
