The series were financed through sponsorship deals and released for free on the web and on P2P networks under a Creative Commons license (attribution, no derivative works). Mitchell Reichgut, director of the series, says in an e-mail newsletter:
Another question that keeps coming up in our IRC channel and in forums around the web, is our rumored connection to SONY. As it happens, one of our producers has a day job there (which was probably the genesis of all the conspiracy theories) but that's as far as it goes. We pay for "The Scene" ourselves and the idea that the show is some kind of anti-piracy propaganda is truly silly.
Each episode is filmed as a combination of a webcam video showing one of the actors superimposed on their desktop, showing e-mail, Internet Relay Chat (IRC) and instant messaging conversations. Most of the action takes place on the computer screen.

The Scene continued for the second season of the series with a misleading name. Instead of focusing on warez culture, the second season took a look at illicit weapons trade happening online, as the director of the series saw the storyline of the season 1 to be complete. The production pace of the series had changed from one monthly episode to much shorter weekly episodes.

The parody also released its first episode for season 2 on November 1, 2006. From what is seen in the first episode of season 2, they are not going to have the same storyline or concept as seen in the "The Scene" season 2.
