TBS has ordered eight episodes of the series, created by Walt Becker ("Wild Hogs") and Michael LeSieur ("You, Me and Dupree") who serve as executive producers. The show is produced by TBS Productions.

"Glory Daze" is about group of friends trying to navigate college life in 1980s Wisconsin. "From being out on their own for the first time to pledging a fraternity, they discover how challenging the next few years are going to be," the network said in a description.

"Glory Daze is a sharply written, laugh-out-loud comedy with a talented ensemble cast, including comic veteran Tim Meadows," said Michael Wright, executive vp, head of programming, for TBS, TNT and Turner Classic Movies. "The time is right for this feel-good, funny and fresh take on college life in the '80s."
