Bob Kushell (3rd Rock from the Sun, Suburgatory) spoke to Digital Spy about the new comedy series, which stars Inbetweeners actor Blake Harrison as a cash-strapped young man who sets up an assisted-suicide business with his brother (Ben Heathcote) and their friend (Marc Wootton).
The US writer explained that Harrison's character Scott "constantly questions" his new way of life across Way to Go's six episodes.
"The scripts deal with it in a very delicate way," he explained. "The subject matter is really the background of what the show is about."
Kushell - who also writes for Charlie Sheen's Anger Management - added that he had "never planned" to work in UK television, but praised the "incredible shows" on offer.
"I think the BBC just got this show," he said. "They're so open to pushing the boundaries."
Way to Go begins on Thursday, January 17 at 10pm on BBC Three.
