Indie prodco and distributor Propagate Content has inked an overall production deal with Training Day and The Equalizer director Antoine Fuqua and his company Fuqua Films.
The multi-year deal will see Fuqua (pictured) and Fuqua Films expanding their TV production activities on both the scripted and unscripted sides.
Fuqua most recently directed and executive produced the two-part HBO documentary What’s My Name: Muhammad Ali, and has previously directed the live-blues film Lightning in a Bottle, and American Dream/American Knightmare, about record industry mogul Suge Night.
“Antoine Fuqua has produced and directed some of the most gripping film and television projects of our time and has a singular creative voice,” said Propagate chairman co-CEO Ben Silverman, in a statement. “He is the rare multi-genre hyphenate with deep production experience across fiction and non-fiction. We are thrilled to collaborate with him in delivering powerful new episodic properties and to help support his efforts to turn Fuqua Films into a global-inclusive production powerhouse.”
“With all of the new digital platforms and the growing appetite among viewers for fresh, original work, it’s an incredible time to be directing and producing television,” added Fuqua. “I’m excited to be working with the amazing Propagate team to bring great stories to life.”
Fuqua is represented by CAA and Ziffren Brittenham LLP.
