The series was first set at AMC and Channel 4, before AMC pulled out, leading Channel 4 to announce the series.[2] In February 2017, it was announced that Amazon Video had bought the U.S. rights to the series.[3] The series will be produced by Sony Pictures Television with Ronald D. 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", based on the short story of the same name, with Tom Harper directing the episode.[6]

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.
