The limited series also features three-time Oscar nominee Joan Allen (The Contender, The Crucible, Nixon), Oscar nominee Jennifer Jason Leigh (The Hateful Eight), Dane DeHaan (A Cure for Wellness), Ron Cephas Jones (This Is Us), and Sung Kang (Power).
The Bad Robot Productions and Warner Bros. Television production was directed by Pablo Larraín (Jackie, Neruda). Larraín, Stephen King, Julianne Moore, J.J. Abrams, Ben Stephenson, and Juan de Dios Larraín executive produce.
