John Carney (‘Once’, ‘Sing Street’) serves as writer, director and executive producer. Additionally, Sharon Horgan (‘Catastrophe’, ‘Divorce’), Tom Hall (‘Sensation’) and Emmy Rossum (‘Shameless’), directed episodes of the series. Horgan directed the Tina Fey-John Slattery led episode, which she also penned.
