Michael B. Jordan's Outlier Society is heading to Amazon!
The Black Panther and Creed star's production company has signed a first-look television deal with Amazon Studios. According to Deadline, the deal also includes the all-important inclusion rider, meaning that all projects made between Amazon and Outlier Society will have diverse representation on and behind the screen. This news comes after the company signed a first-look film deal with Warner Bros. last month.
Jordan released a statement on his company's latest deal. "It's an exciting moment for Outlier Society," he said. "On behalf of myself and President of Production, Alana Mayo, we are thrilled to be entering into this partnership with Amazon Studios. In just a few short years they have become home to some of television's most groundbreaking series and an extraordinary place for talent to create, with a cutting-edge business model that speaks to today's audiences. Alongside the expert leadership at Amazon Studios, we can't wait to unveil the fruits of the union."
Amazon Studios' Jennifer Salke said of Jordan in a statement, "The key to Michael's success, going back to the beginning of his career, has been his ability to elevate each role he has brought to life, often shattering stereotypes along the way."
"One of the reasons it's so excited to be in business with him, Alana and Outlier Society is because they are part of a new wave of creative talents emphasizing diversity both above and below the line, using their success to empower other," she said. "We can't wait to bring their vision to a global audience who is hungry for revolutionary, authentic content."
