The series was co-created by Thomas W. Lynch and pop star Nick Cannon, who also serve as executive producers. Steven DeNure and Anne Loi are executive producers for DHX Media. Global distribution and brand management will be handled by DHX Media, with merchandising and licensing being done through appointed agency Copyright Promotions Licensing Group. The first season of the series was shot at DHX’s Epitome Studio in Toronto.
