Trey, Matt, Dian, Toddy, Ian, Jason and the gang had just got distribution for Cannibal! the Musical. A woman named Pam Brady, who worked for FOX loved the movie and suggested they take the characters and make it into a TV show. However, they were sick of doing "Cannibal" and decided instead to take the basic idea of "Cannibal" and apply it to other historical events. They made the pilot "Aaron" intended as a show for adults. The network, however, felt it would work better as a kids show as a part of the Fox Kids lineup, so they went back and made a kid friendly pilot called "Rom and Jul". Fox Kids passed on the project.
