After reaching an agreement with Amazon in 2018, #JordanPeele seems to be bringing his talents to Universal Studios.
According to @deadline, it was announced on Wednesday that the Oscar winner and Universal Pictures had signed a multi-year overall TV agreement.
Previously, Universal Pictures released Monkey Paw Productions and the MGM movie “Candy Man”, which is currently the first film directed by Nia DaCosta.
Win Rosenfield, President of Monkeypaw Productions, said: “We are delighted to be working with the incredible team of Pearlena and USG to shape the future of Monkeypaw TV shows,” said Win Rosenfeld, President of Monkeypaw. “Their expertise, creativity and collaborative spirit are very suitable for our company. The opportunity to continue to produce dynamic and diverse shows while deepening our relationship with NBCU is really exciting.”
If you remember, Peele’s first feature film “Going Out” won four Oscar nominations and one Oscar for best original screenplay in 2017.
According to the deadline, he followed up with “We” in 2019, which is “the biggest original horror movie ever opened at the box office.”
