Apple has inked a first-look deal with Scott Free Productions.
Scott Free, which was founded by Ridley Scott and Tony Scott back in 1970, has been behind a number of major films, including Top Gun, Gladiator and The Martian.
On the small screen, though, it has also been a notable player, bringing to the screen not only The Good Wife and The Good Fight but also Taboo, AMC’s The Terror, BBC and FX’s A Christmas Carol, FOX’s The Passage and CBS series BrainDead. Over the years, it has bagged more than 100 Emmy nominations and 28 Golden Globe nods for its TV output.
The company is also no stranger to streaming, having produced Jean-Claude Van Johnson and The Man in the High Castle for Amazon Studios. Now, it’s moving to Apple TV+, where it will develop global TV projects exec-produced by Scott and Scott Free’s TV team of David Zucker, Clayton Krueger and Jordan Sheehan.
