Skybound and Sony Announce Television Venture

Skybound Entertainment and Sony Pictures Television today announced Skybound Galactic, a new venture formed and led by Rick Jacobs (Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, Mr. Right) that will finance the development and production of scripted television series. Sony Pictures Television is an investor in Galactic and will sell international rights for projects from the venture.
 
Skybound Galactic’s current development includes Thief of Thieves, based on the comic book series created by Robert Kirkman, with Evan Endicott and Josh Stoddard (Warrior) adapting and Assaf Bernstein (Fauda) directing. Galactic is also developing an adaptation of the Image Comic Nailbiter, created by Josh Williamson and Mike Henderson. Scott Kosar (Bates Motel) is adapting the series and Oz Perkins is directing. Overseeing both projects on behalf of Skybound are Film & Television Co-Presidents Sean and Bryan Furst, who will continue to expand the company’s slate while producing projects for Galactic.
 
Galactic has also landed a first-look deal with Top Cow, a partner studio of Image Comics. Top Cow titles already in development include The Darkness and Think Tank, with Top Cow partners Marc Silvestri and Matt Hawkins serving as executive producers for series developed under the deal.
 
Galactic will continue to pursue projects in the genre space and look to build co-productions with international partners.
 
“Combining the multi-platform capabilities of Skybound and Top Cow’s extensive library of IP with the best worldwide distribution in Sony is an unbelievable opportunity,” said CEO of Skybound Galactic Rick Jacobs. “I’m looking forward to continuing Skybound’s mission to help creators expand their content into new markets.”
 
Skybound Entertainment’s Chairman Robert Kirkman, CEO David Alpert, and Managing Partner Jon Goldman will be among the board members of Skybound Galactic, along with Rick Jacobs.
 
Keith Le Goy, President Worldwide Distribution at Sony Pictures Entertainment said, “The team at Skybound already has a stellar track record in creating successful genre properties, and like us, are committed to creating undeniable viewing experiences for audiences around the world. We look forward to many successful collaborations through our new venture.”
