Moore, Michael Dinner, and Bryan Cranston serving as executive producers. Cranston will also star in one of the episodes.[2] The episode writers include Ronald D. Moore, Michael Dinner, Tony Grisoni, Jack Thorne, Matthew Graham, David Farr, Dee Rees, and Travis Beacham.[15] Jack Thorne will write "The Commuter", the first episode of the series, based on the short story of the same name, with Tom Harper directing the episode.[4]

Post-production sound supervision and design will be done by Mark Lanza. He has worked with Dinner and Cranston before on the Amazon Video crime drama series Sneaky Pete.
