Oscar-nominated actor, director and producer Don Cheadle (pictured), star of Hotel Rwanda and Avengers: Endgame, has launched the new production company Radicle Act and signed a first-look deal with Industrial Media, the company behind American Idol, So You Think You Can Dance, 90 Day Fiance, Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath and more.
Radicle Act seeks to produce a diverse slate of TV and film content from new and emerging talent.
Mika Pryce has been tapped as SVP and head of development to lead Radicle Act’s content across platforms.
This is the third deal Industrial has inked this year following its partnerships with content producers including Momentum Content and its CEO, Christina Douglas, and director and executive producer Matthew Galkin and his company, Fairhaven Films.
Radicle Act has revealed that it will produce a scripted adaptation of the B.B. Alston book Amari and the Night Brothers with Universal.
While no unscripted projects have yet been announced, the partnership with Industrial suggests unscripted content is likely to play into Radicle’s strategy.
