Damian Kindler (Sleepy Hollow) will serve as executive producer and showrunner with Colm McCarthy (Peaky Blinders) set to direct and co-executive produce the pilot. The pilot was written and re-written by David S. Goyer & Ian Goldberg (Once Upon a Time).
As far as we know this series will not have any film tie-ins as we reported in episode 4 of Drive Time on our Youtube channel since DC Entertainment does not cross platforms of TV and film. Will you be checking out the pilot episode of Krypton? Let us know in the comment section below.
