EXCLUSIVE: Legendary Entertainment has inked a first-look TV and digital production pact with Jimmy Miller’s Mosaic Media Group. The companies will look to develop series programming to be distributed via traditional network and cable platforms as well as over-the-top opportunities and other online platforms.
The move represents another expansive step in Thomas Tull’s ambitious strategy for Legendary, which is looking to expand beyond its fanboy base. Mosaic reps comedy talent including Chris Pratt, Will Ferrell and Damon Wayans Jr.
Mosaic most recently re-teamed with Ferrell and Adam McKay’s Gary Sanchez Productions on Manimal, the feature based on the cult 1980s TV show about a man who fights crime using his ability to morph into animals. That project has been set by Sony Pictures Animation.
Earlier today in Sydney, Legendary saw the world premiere of Angelina Jolie’s much-buzzed Louis Zamperini biopic Unbroken, which Legendary co-financed.
