The 13-part series was created by Deb Cox and Andrew Knight, who also created the ABC hit SeaChange and have collaborated on shows and films including Simone de Beauvoir's Babies and Siam Sunset.

SeaChange stars William McInnes and Alison Whyte (the producer's assistant in Frontline) will also appear in CrashBurn in guest roles.
