Michael B. Jordan recently launched a production company, Outlier Productions, and signed a production deal. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jordan signed a multiyear first-look film and TV production deal with Skydance Media.
Wynn Wyga will serve as the VP of Jordan’s Outlier Productions. Wyga previously worked with Mad Chance Productions as the director of development.
Jordan’s first production will be a television series titled Apollo Park. The scripted drama revolves around a young basketball player’s rapid rise to professional fame and the effects of his success on his family and community back in inner-city Detroit. Eric Amadio co-created Apollo Park with Jordan. He will write the potential series and executive produce alongside Jordan.
“I love telling true, modern stories and Apollo Park — an underdog tale about a very real and very heroic hustler who defies stereotypes and thrives against great odds — has long been a passion project of mine. Eric and I are excited to join forces with the incredible creative team at Skydance to share it with the world,” said Jordan. “I’m also very eager to start this new chapter in my career by launching my production company and I am thrilled to have Wynn join my team.”
Congratulations Michael B. Jordan!
