Amazon Strikes Overall TV Deal With Brad Pitt’s Plan B Entertainment & Sets Mystery Drama ‘Outer Range’

Amazon has struck an exclusive overall television deal with Brad Pitt’s Plan B Entertainment.

This marks the first ever exclusive TV agreement for Plan B, which met with a number of studios and streamers before setting up TV home at Amazon Studios.

Under the pact, Plan B, run by co-presidents Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner, have teamed with the streamer on thriller drama Outer Range, created by playwright Brian Watkins. It centers on a rancher fighting for his land and family, who discovers an unfathomable mystery at the edge of Wyoming’s wilderness. Zev Borow, Heather Rae, and Plan B Entertainment executive produce.

At Amazon, Plan B already is producing Barry Jenkins’ The Underground Railroad, an adaptation of Colson Whitehead’s novel. The story centers on young Cora (Thuso Mbedu), a slave on a cotton plantation in Georgia who learns about the Underground Railroad from Caesar (Aaron Pierre), a recent arrival from Virginia; both decide to escape. The show is set to air later this year.

Roeper on the Oscar nominations: Brad Pitt the best of a starry category…

Renee Zellweger is a surefire winner for her Judy Garland impression because Academy Award voters love that kind of overwrought work.

And the nomination for arguably the most star-laden loaded category in recent Academy Awards history goes to:

Best supporting actor, with nominees Tom Hanks (“A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood”), Anthony Hopkins (“The Two Popes”), Al Pacino and Joe Pesci (both for “The Irishman”) and “Brad Pitt (“Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood”).

Pitt is the only one of those modern-day icons who has yet to win at least one acting Oscar. He’s also the favorite in the category — and his fierce, funny, deadpan performance in “OUTIH” also happens to be the most deserving…

New Europe interview

Fresh off his Golden Globes win for his role in Quenin Tarantino’s film. Once Upon a time in Hollywood, iconic America actor Brad Pitt sat down with New Europe’s Federico Grandesso while the latter was in Venice to promote the science fiction film Ad Astra, his most, and a collaboration with director James Gray.

NEW EUROPE (NE): What’s your feeling about the major success of Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood?

BRAD PITT (BP): Well, that the movie was well-received by the critics and audiences alike, and has made a huge earning at the US box office, was expected. I think it’s great. It’s big for a Quentin film that it could still land like that. I think it was the only original content released over last summer that is neither a sequel nor based on a comic book or something like that. So, it’s no small feat. It says a lot that the studios can still gamble on films like his. I’m really pleased for it because the film was well-suited to my taste, of course.
