Brian K. Vaughan of Lost wrote the series, and the director of the Swedish version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Niels Arden Ople, is directing the first episode. The series also stars Pan Am's Mike Vogel, True Blood's Aisha Hinds, Secret Circle's Britt Robertson, CSI: NY's Natalie Martinez, Jolene Purdy, Nicholas Strong, Alex Koch, and Colin Ford.
