FremantleMedia North America (FMNA) has announced a first-look deal with Bob Cooper’s Landscape Entertainment. The first project in development through this new partnership is a scripted drama for Hulu centered on Michelangelo, written by South African-British author, Richard Mason (“The Drowning People”). The series will detail the life of the brilliant and troubled artist, told through a modern lens that delves into the sexuality, relationships, alliances and betrayals in the volatile world of 16th Century Florence.
Martha De Laurentiis will executive produce the series along with FremantleMedia’s Dante Di Loreto, and Landscape’s Bob Cooper and Tom Lerner. There is no confirmed launch date or episode count at present.
