Ali Selim directs and executive-produces with fellow executive producers Kevin Feige; Jonathan Schwartz; Louis D’Esposito; Victoria Alonso; Brad Winderbaum; Samuel L. Jackson; Ali Selim; Kyle Bradstreet; and Brian Tucker. Bradstreet is also the head writer, and Jennifer L. Booth, Allana Williams, and Brant Englestein serve as co-executive producers.
The series' visual effects are created by MARZ, One of Us, and Zoic Studios under the guidance of Production VFX Supervisor Kevin Rafferty.
The series was first announced by Feige back in December 2020, at a Disney's Investor Day presentations, touting Jackson's Nick Fury and Mendelsohn's Talos, characters who first met in Captain Marvel, in "the crossover comic event series [that] showcases a faction of shapeshifting Skrulls who have been infiltrating Earth for years."
Clark's involvement in the series was first announced in 2021, along with Ben-Adir and Colman's.
