Jack Black inks TV production deal
Actor's Electric Dynamite sets up shop at ReveilleJack Black is entering the TV producing business, inking an exclusive production deal with Reveille for TV and online scripted comedies, unscripted and animated projects.
Under the two-year pact, Black's production company Electric Dynamite will set up offices at Reveille with former WME agent Priyanka Mattoo joining Black and partner Ben Cooley.
Shine International will handle international distribution for the series and formats to come out of the deal.
"The company is called Electric Dynamite and we've found the perfect home with the like-minded trailblazers at Shine and Reveille," Black said. "Don't worry TV...Help is on the way!"
WME-repped Black got his start in TV series, as the co-creator/star/executive producer of HBO's "Tenacious D."
He segued into the big screen, while occasionally making memorable TV guest appearances, most recently on NBC's "The Office," which is co-produced by Reveille, and "Community."
