Schmigadoon! is co-created by Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio, coming from Broadway Video and Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group. Cinco Paul serves as the showrunner and wrote all of the original songs for the series.

Barry Sonnenfeld directs and executive produces. In addition to starring, Cecily Strong serves as producer, and Ken Daurio serves as consulting producer and writer. Andrew Singer executive produces with Lorne Michaels on behalf of Broadway Video.
