Margot Robbie’s Production Company Inks First-Look Deal With Warner Bros. TV
Margot Robbie’s production company LuckyChap Entertainment has inked a two-year first-look deal with Warner Bros. Television. As part of the pact, she has already sold her first project, a drama about Wall Street called Shattered Glass, to NBC.
Created and written by Kat Blasband Page, Shattered Glass is described as House of Cards meets Revenge. An empowering post-feminist revenge fantasy set in the world of Wall Street, the project follows a trio of modern women who come together to shatter their respective glass ceilings, taking no prisoners along the way.
Robbie and Brett Hedblom will executive produce for LuckyChap along with Patti Carr, who will serve as showrunner. Page will co-exec produce the series.
“We are so excited by this new relationship with Warner Brothers Television,” LuckyChap principals Robbie, Tom Ackerley and Josey McNamara said Friday in a joint statement. “It has come after a great year for LuckyChap in which we have gradually been building a television slate overseen by our executive Brett Hedblom. We continue to strive to tell female stories in both film and TV, and are immensely proud that our first two shows are created by, written by and starring women.”
In addition to Shattered Glass, LuckyChap recently sold to Hulu a comedy starring Kat Dennings called Dollface, which was created and written by Jordan Weiss. Meanwhile on the film side, the company already has a first-look deal with Warner Bros., which produced I, Tonya and the upcoming indie Dreamland.
LuckyChap is repped by Management 360, CAA and attorney Jeff Bernstein. Page is repped by CAA, Grandview Management and attorney Tara Kole. Carr is repped by CAA and attorney Patti Felker.
