As the TV and film landscape continues to adapt to the streaming climate, some of Hollywood’s top names are reaping the early rewards.
The latest being Idris Elba.
Full story below…
The multi-hyphenate talent has signed a blockbuster first-look deal with Apple.
As part of the partnership, Elba and his Green Door Pictures imprint will develop and produce feature film and TV series projects for the company’s streaming service Apple TV+.
Beyond the star’s pull on the big screen, he’s made notable strides with Green Door – which he launched in 2013.
In the seven years since Elba set sail with the venture (which counts diversity and inclusion at the core of its proposition), it’s yielded Netflix series ‘Turn Up Charlie’ and ‘In The Long Run’ (which screened on Starz in the US) and forthcoming feature ‘Concrete Cowboys.’
By signing with the tech giant, the Golden Globe winner joins the likes of Oprah Winfrey and ‘The Morning Show’ creator Kerry Ehrin on the list of names with content deals at Apple.
