The Russo's will be in Executive Producer roles (which doesn't actually tell us what they will do, but hey...)

The showrunners for Magic:The Gathering will be Henry Gilroy (Star Wars Rebels) and Jose Molina (The Tick). Gilroy & Molina will also write the show. Animation will be done by Octopie Network and Bardel Studio.

So. Discussed this with a colleague who is a huge MtG nerd. (I have played a little, and still retain my old White/Red Soldier deck)

Couldn't decide if this will be targeted for a wider/younger audience or not. I think not. Especially after reading a couple articles, but he is not convinced. Thoughts?
 
I’m not a Magic player, but this is still pretty exciting. Bardel looks to have done work on The Dragon Prince, Bob’s Burgers, Teen Titans Go!, and Rick & Morty, amongst other things.

I think they are definitely aiming at a family audience: not Pokemon levels, but Avatar The Last Airbender, Clone Wars or Spiderverse. That's the audience they market the game to.
