“[Executive producers] Todd A. Kessler, Daniel Zelman, and Glenn Kessler (KZK) are thoughtful and visionary storytellers, who lead a prestigious cast, that includes Kyle Chandler and Ben Mendelsohn, who have both garnered two Emmy nominations for their roles on the series,” Holland said.

“Together, with our collaborative partners at Sony Pictures Television they created a seductive show that Netflix viewers worldwide love and continue to discover.”
