Flanagan is writing and directing as well as executive producing alongside his producing partner Trevor Macy, and Amblin TV’s Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey.
Jackson-Cohen most recently starred in BBC series Man in an Orange Shirt and NBC’s Emerald City. He’s repped by United Agents in London, WME and Management 360.
