Kelli Crawford

Crawford, co-creator of The Dominants, wrote the screenplay in order to "see ourselves reflected on a TV show, to see three strong women leading the ensemble, to show the actual reality of living a BDSM lifestyle, and for the 'other' in all of us". She has also been writing since she was five years old.

Alex Kitay

Kitay's experience writing The Dominants has been an exciting opportunity to "show the richness of the kink world with it's beauty and warts in a way that was honest and affirming". The Dominants hits all his favorite notes: provocative, honest, raw, and heartfelt with a sense of humor and a strong connection to the human experience.

Kate Emswiler

Emswiler is a writer, producer and comedy performer based in New York City who was inspired to write this screenplay when she realized that no woman has hosted (or been afforded the opportunity to host) a major network TV game show in the same way that hosts like Pat Sajak and Alex Trebek have been hosting their shows for decades.

Sarah-Smith Williams

Williams grew up as a child actor from the age of five until she was thirty-one. Her screenplay came about because she is drawn to stories about women who claim their power both magically and metaphorically. "I wholeheartedly believe in magic. I believe it exists in subtle ways and not so subtle ways."
