The series is produced by Rooster Teeth, and is set to debut on Netflix July 30th. FJ DeSanto serves as showrunner, with the episodes written by George Krstic, Gavin Hignight and Brandon M. Easton. Krstic is the co-creator of Megas XLR, while Easton worked on the Thundercats reboot a few years back.
