Tomorrow Studios will collaborate with Big Light’s network of writers

Frank Spotnitz’s Big Light Productions has signed a first-look deal with Snowpiercer producer Tomorrow Studios.

Under the partnership, Tomorrow Studios will mine original IP from Big Light’s network of writers, who specialise in returning and limited dramas for the likes of Netflix (Medici: Masters of Florence, The Indian Detective), Amazon Prime (The Man In The High Castle), BBC (Hunted), Rai (Leonardo), CBS (Ransom) and Sky (Devils).

It will be overseen by Big Light’s founder, writer and producer Frank Spotnitz (The X-Files, Night Stalker), and creative director Emily Feller (Leonardo, Medici, Trust Me, Ordinary Lies).

Spotnitz and Feller said the team at Tomorrow Studios is “incredibly smart, driven and share our commitment to making television that’s truly worth watching.”

Tomorrow Studios’ chief executive and founder Marty Adelstein and president/ partner Becky Clements added: “Frank and Emily bring great storytelling and commitment to honouring the writer’s vision for projects, both of which are incredibly important to us.”

Big Light’s most recent credits include Leonardo, starring Aidan Turner, for Rai, France Télévisions, Sony and Amazon Prime UK, and the second series of Sky hit drama Devils, which it co-produced alongside Sky Italia and Lux Vide in collaboration with Sky Studios, Orange Studios and OCS.

Its first scripted podcast, crime drama Radioman, stars Game of Thrones’ Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and launched this month on Audible.

Recent credits from Tomorrow Studios, a partnership with ITV Studios, include Snowpiercer for Netflix, Physical for Apple TV+ and adult animation series 10 Year Old Tom for HBO Max. It is also producing the live action adaptation of the manga series One Piece for Netflix and novel Let The Right One In for Showtime.

It’s the second such deal for the Leonardo producer in as many months, following a March signing with Alma Margo, the indie set up by Inventing Anna star Julia Garner.
