Chicken Soup for the Soul Entertainment has signed a deal with Ashton Kutcher that will see the actor serve as executive producer for two new unscripted television series.

The agreement expands the relationship between Kutcher and the company. Chicken Soup entered into an exclusive distribution agreement in September 2016 with Kutcher’s digital media company, APlus.com which specializes in positive journalism and social change.

Kutcher will executive produce the two television series, which will focus on the uplifting themes drawn from his digital media company and Chicken Soup for the Soul. The series are slated for distribution on broadcast or cable channels and online.

The company currently produces two shows for broadcast television, Chicken Soup for the Soul’s Hidden Heroes and Project Dad
