It’s a trend that’s been happening for the past few years, and it’s showing no sign of slowing down: one of the most interesting directors in Hollywood is making the jump to the small screen. Deadline is reporting that HBO has signed a three-year first-look deal with Darren Aronofsky and his Protozoa Pictures. Protozoa will develop material that will be directed by the filmmaker and produced by HBO.
But the director won’t stick exclusively to TV. This news comes at the same time as an announcement that Aronofsky has also entered a film deal with New Regency, the company that produced his upcoming film Noah, which is scheduled to be released on March 28th this year. Aronofsky had this to say regarding the two partnerships:
“It is a thrill to be re-teaming with my old friends at New Regency. Arnon has been a great supporter since we made The Fountain together. It is a golden age for the small screen and moving into that realm with HBO as partners is a dream come true. I am excited to see Protozoa’s output explode over the next few years.”
Best known for his feature films that include The Wrestler, Black Swan, Requiem for a Dream, and more, this will be Aronofsky’s first TV production deal. I for one am excited to see anything that Aronofsky and HBO cook up together. I’m kind of hankering for another quality show to be obsessed with…still haven’t filled my “Breaking Bad” void.
Are you excited by Aronofsky and HBO teaming up? Let us know in the comments!
