Ridley scott deal
The multi-year agreement will allow Scott Free to create global television projects for Apple TV +, with Ridley Scott, David Zucker, Clayton Krueger and Jordan Sheehan as executive producers.
Scott Free has produced a number of movies and TV series such as “The Martian”, “The Good Wife”, “Man in the High Castle” and “The Terror”. If his name sounds familiar to Apple fans, it’s because he made the famous Commercial “1984”.
This agreement follows the announcement by Sofia Coppola who will create a series adaptation for Apple based on the book by Edith Wharton, “La coutume du pays”. In early May, it was announced that Annie Weisman would produce content for Apple TV + for two years.
