Lending their talents to the pioneering series are script development executives Lea Dizon and Katherine Visconti. Dizon was previously an executive for the Walt Disney Studios, while Visconti worked on shows like Keifer Sutherland’s “Designated Survivor,” CBS’s “FBI” and NBC’s “Chicago PD.”

Rounding up the team are renowned individuals Tara Sering, former editor in chief for Summit Publications, Tweet Sering, a best-selling author, and Pam Quinones, fashion stylist and current VOGUE (Philippines) fashion editor.
