Stephen Williams will also serve as executive producer along with David Levine and Zack Hayden for Anonymous Content, Aubrey Graham pka Drake, Adel “Future” Nur and Jason Shrier for Dreamcrew Entertainment, Alexis Schaitkin and Steve Pearlman. Saint X is an ABC Signature production.

Bonzie recently starred as Randal in Ryan Murphy’s Netflix series The politician and was seen in a recurring role on The Good Fight. He is replaced by Buchwald and Emily Downs at Meyers & Downs.
