“We wanted to make a show that was escape and adventure, where nature takes back the world and feels like a fairy tale in many ways,” said co-showrunner and director Jim Mickle in a statement. “Sweet Tooth is a new kind of dystopian story. It’s very lush and hopeful. We want people to come to this world where there is beauty, hope and adventure. This is a full story – we ride trains, climb mountain peaks, run through forests. This is a show about what a family is all about, what home really means and why it is important to believe in humanity. “

Sweet tooth is created and directed by Jim Mickle based on a script that he wrote together with Beth Schwartz (arrow) who both act as showrunners. Executive producers are Mickle, Schwartz, Robert Downey Jr. of Team Downey, Susan Downey and Amanda Burrell, and Linda Moran, with Evan Moore of Team Downey as producer.
