The series also starred Elena Satine as Julia and Alex Hassell as Vicious.
Andre Nemec served as the showrunner and he also executive produced it alongside Jeff Pinkner, Josh Appelbaum, Scott Rosenberg, Marty Adelstein, Becky Clements, Makoto Asanuma, Shin Sasaki, Masayuki Ozaki, Tim Coddington, Tetsu Fujimura, Michael Katleman, Matthew Weinberg, and Christopher Yost.
