Aaron McGruder & Will Packer Developing Series for Amazon
Boondocks fans rejoice! Series creator Aaron McGruder and super-producer Will Packer are teaming up on a new project for Amazon.
Though details about the show are being kept quiet for now, Deadline reports the drama will “revolve around an alternate universe in the vein of The Man in the High Castle.”
McGruder, who won a Peabody Award for the Boondocks will executive produce the series with Packer, who’s film credits include Straight Outta Compton, Think Like a Man, and Almost Christmas along with BET’s new show, The Quad.
The move marks Amazon’s bid to become a major player in the original content space. Like Netflix and Hulu, Amazon has been quickly adding titles to its streaming service, which includes award winning series like Transparent, and critically acclaimed shows like Catastrophe, Mozart in the Jungle, and Bosh.
