Skydance has sealed an exclusive, multi-year first-look TV and film deal with Michael B. Jordan and his new production company Outlier Productions. The first project under the agreement is an original scripted TV series Apollo Park, the story of a young, inner-city Detroit basketball player’s rapid rise to professional fame. Eric Amadio, whose new series Snowfall just received a 10-episode order at FX, will write the series he co-created with Jordan. The Creed actor will serve as executive producer alongside Amadio, Evan Silverberg, Kenny Goodman, David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, and Marcy Ross. In addition, Wynn Wygal moves from Andrew Lazar’s Mad Chance to Outlier as VP.
