Heslov executive produces via her Pop Smoke productions. Clooney, Grant Heslov and Kerry Foster executive produce for Smokehouse TV alongside wiip (Mare of Easttown, Dickinson).
“Brother from Another is one of those stranger-than-fiction stories that would be unbelievable if it weren’t true; it’s a gripping tale that makes for a great addition to Epix’s acclaimed docuseries slate,” said Michael Wright, President, Epix. “We look forward to working with Lysa and team on developing this series.”
“The decision to take the project to Epix was easy; their content is consistently compelling and original, just like this twisted true crime saga,” said Heslov.
