The show's creators are Jim Dirschberger, Andreas Trolf, and Jay Howell. Howell is also the character designer on Bob's Burgers.[3] Sanjay and Craig is being produced by Will McRobb and Chris Viscardi,[4] the creators of The Adventures of Pete & Pete.

The show is about the adventures of the title characters, a 12-year-old Indian American[5] human boy named Sanjay Patel, and his best friend, a talking snake named Craig. On a promotional webpage for the show, the network explains that Sanjay and Craig's adventures require that "nobody finds out that Craig can talk".[6]
