Iron Man and Children of Men writers Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby will also be writing the series, and executive producing alongside Judkins as showrunner.

Sony Santa Monica Studio creative director Cory Barlog will also serve as executive producer, alongside Santa Monica Studio’s Yumi Yang, Vertigo Entertainment’s Roy Lee, and Playstation Productions’ Asad Qizilbash and Carter Swan. Santa Monica Studio’s Jeff Ketcham is also co-executive producer.
