George Clooney & Grant Heslov’s Smokehouse Pictures Inks Overall Deal With Sony Pictures TV


George Clooney and Grant Heslov’s company Smokehouse Pictures, which was behind best picture Oscar winnerArgo, is making a move in television with an overall deal at Sony Pictures TV. Under the pact, the company will develop and produce comedy and drama series for all platforms: broadcas, cable and digital. Since launching Smokehouse in 2006, Clooney and Heslov have been focused primarily on features, developing and producing films that the two directed, like Leatherheads, The Ides of March and The Monuments Men (Clooney) and The Men Who Stare at Goats(Heslov) as well as features directed by others, most recently Argo, helmed by Ben Affleck and and last year’sAugust: Osage County, directed by John Wells. Clooney comes from a strong TV background, having started in television as an actor and then producer. Smokehouse has a history at Sony  — the company moved its feature deal from Warner Bros. to Sony in 2009.

I think this is a great move on their part!

There is a great deal of quality TV being produced and with the internet and outlets like Netflix producing original programming there is a huge need for content. 

I read recently that quite a few film powerhouses are moving into TV because of the quality of writing. 

Look at the shows coming out either soon or next fall and the caliber of actors/actresses in the shows. For instance Oscar winners Halle Berry and Viola Davis will both be starring in shows on TV.

Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson just did a short stint on an HBO show that was hugely popular.

Susan Sarandan, Meg Ryan will be starring in comedies and Don Cheadle has been in a Showtime series for several years.

There is more info in the CNN article at the link.
