After signing a deal with Amazon in 2018, it looks like #JordanPeele will bring his talents to Universal Studio Group.
It was announced on Wednesday that the Oscar winner has signed a multi-year television deal with Universal, according to @deadline.
This comes after Universal released the Monkeypaw Productions and MGM film “Candyman,” which is currently number one and directed by Nia DaCosta.
Monkeypaw Productions President Win Rosenfield said, “We are delighted to be working with Pearlena and the incredible team at USG to produce the future of Monkeypaw’s television panel,” said Monkeypaw President Win Rosenfeld. “Your expertise, your creativity and your team spirit are an ideal match for our company. This opportunity to continue creating dynamic, diverse programming while deepening our relationship with NBCU is really exciting. “
If you remember, Peele’s first feature film, Get Out, received four Academy Award nominations and an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay in 2017.
He followed with “Us” from 2019, which, according to Deadline, was the “biggest box office opening for an original horror film of all time”.
