So this is a thing that happened:
Hot Drama About Eccentric Magicians Scores Deal With Knopf, Paramount TV (Hollywood Reporter)
I’m pretty pretty happy. As the article notes, we had a bidding process going on among various studios and production groups. The clincher about the Paramount offer was the chance to work with the folks from Anonymous Content. They’re the people behind True Detective, Spotlight, The Revenant, and one of my favorite small movies, The End of the Tour.
Another clincher–I’ll be an executive producer on the show, and I’ll let you know what that means as soon as I figure it out.
