Full Clip Prods., the company founded by Avatar and Clash of the Titans star Sam Worthington, John Schwarz and Michael Schwarz, is venturing into television, signing a first-look deal with NBCUniversal International, the international TV production division of NBCUniversal.
Launched in 2010, Full Clip Prods. last May entered into an imprint deal with Radical Studios to original graphic novels to be published and distributed through Diamond Comic Distributors. The deal with NBCU International calls for Full Clip to develop original content, as well as potential spin-off programming based on its graphic novel stories. Full Clip Prods. will executive produce any projects greenlit and produced by NBCUniversal International. “Sam Worthington has great commercial instincts and a passion for telling original, character-driven stories,” NBCU International TV Prod. president Michael Edelstein said.
Full Clip’s TV efforts will be shepherded by Luca Scalisi, former executive for Eminem’s entertainment and licensing company, Shady World Prods. The company is based in Los Angeles and will work closely with LA-based Deborah Oppenheimer, EVP NBCUniversal International TV Prods.
