The series was directed by the six-time Indonesian Film Festival Award winner, Emil Heradi. In addition to the main cast, the series showcases several Indonesian actors such as Wulan Guritno, Tarra Budiman, and Irgi Fahrezi, alongside young rising stars such as Jennifer Coppen and Marcell Darwin.

Director Emil Heradi said, "The series was fully shot in Bali, with a brilliant cast and top-notch feature film crew that was focused on showcasing excellent Asian cinematic values to the world. The characters and relationships have been adapted for local appeal, while the strong twists and turns of the original series were given a Viu-style makeover. I appreciate Viu's expertise in taking international formats and making them locally relevant."
