Together, they produced 'Bright' and 'Project Power' for the streamer.

Screen Arcade partners Eric Newman and Bryan Unkeless are parting ways to relaunch their old shingles, each with Netflix pacts.

The duo was behind the streamer's first foray into original features and tentpole filmmaking with Bright, forming Screen Arcade shortly after. Most recently, they released Project Power onto the service, with Bright 2 still in development.

Newman, who is behind Netflix's Narcos series, will revive his Grand Electric banner and will be joined by former Netflix exec Sara Bowen (Marriage Story). Unkeless will revive Clubhouse Pictures, under which he produced I, Tonya, and more recently Birds of Prey.

Both Grand Electric and Clubhouse have a first-look deal with the streamer.

The duo will develop and produce their shared slate, which includes Bright 2, under the Screen Arcade banner.
