Richard Gadd, an Edinburgh Comedy Award winner in 2016 and known for his work on Sex Education, brings his unique voice to the series both in writing and performance. The direction is helmed by Weronika Tofilska and Josephine Bornebusch, with Matthew Mulot producing. Gadd also serves as an executive producer alongside Petra Fried, Ed Macdonald, Matt Jarvis, and Wim De Greef.

The storyline of Baby Reindeer is adapted from Gadd’s hit one-man play that was a sensation at the Edinburgh Fringe, drawing acclaim for its raw and honest portrayal of a comedian’s unsettling encounter with a stalker.
