Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol co-writer André Nemec developed the live-action Cowboy Bebop, with Thor: Ragnarok co-writer Christopher Yost serving as head writer on the Netflix series. Cowboy Bebop's original creator Hajime Yatate is also said to be part of the writing team for the 10-episode first season. And the anime's director Shinichirō Watanabe was involved as a creative consultant. Netflix's live-action take has been half-and-half directed by Alex Garcia Lopez (Daredevil, The Witcher) and Michael Katleman (CBS' Zoo), with Lopez helming the first two episodes. The Cowboy Bebop anime also had an iconic soundtrack, and composer Yoko Kanno returns for the Netflix version.
