Michael B. Jordan’s Outlier & Amazon Ink First Look Deal For Original Series

Not content to simply dominate the big screen, Michael B. Jordan will be taking over the small screen as well.

The Creed II star has just signed a first-look television deal with Amazon that comes just as his next starring vehicle Without Remorse receives a 2020 release date. The Michael B. Jordan Amazon deal comes on the heels of yet another first-look deal that the actor signed with Warner Bros. Just another step for Jordan to continue his total domination f Hollywood.

Variety reports that Jordan’s Outlier Society banner has signed a first-look television deal with Amazon Studios. As part of the deal, all Outlier Society projects will contain an inclusion rider, an inclusive-hiring clause for which Jordan was one of the first high-profile names to support.

Putting its morals where its money is, the deal is set not only to bring new series to the Jeff Bezos created streamer but also to enlarge the franchise, literally and figuratively. All projects between Jordan’s Outlier and Amazon will have an inclusion rider. This increasingly and thankfully more and more incrementally familer state of affairs in the industry mandates a specific level of diverse hiring on both sides of the camera for crew and cast.

In a statement following the announcement, Jordan said:

“It’s an exciting moment for Outlier Society. 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 this union.”

The announcement with Amazon comes one day before Jordan joins his fellow David Makes Man executive producer Oprah Winfrey at Times Square’s Playstation Theater for a sit-down one-on-one interview.
