Currently being Executive Producers for Sleepy Hollow that has as mentioned in earlier posts already been renewed for a second season!

Fresh of the success of Sleepy Hollow now they are going forward and have sold dramas to CBS and The CW.

The CBS project is inspired by the true story of Walter O’Brien’s life and how he, a man with the fourth highest documented Iq, became a real-life professor X. He recruited the world’s greatest intellects to his company where they not only solved the world’s most pressing and significant problems, but also helped each other learn to fit in and live in a world where literally being “one in a billion” can be as lonely as it sounds.

The CW’s Untitled Sibling Terrorist drama, written by Corinne Brinkerhoff, is inspired by Israeli feature script Dance Of The Hours by Orna Raiz. It centers on a young Brooklynite recruited by the CIA to infiltrate her recently discovered biological family, a wealthy and powerful dynasty in Texas suspected of having criminal alliances across the globe.
