Sam Englebardt (Diary of the Dead) and William D. Johnson (Paranoia, Byzantium) are producing the Demarest Pictures production, alongside Shannon McIntosh for Smith’s Smodcast Pictures. Drake is best known for his scores for a number of DC Entertainment animated films, includingBatman: The Dark Knight Returns, Batman: Under the Red Hood and Justice League: Doom.
