Tyler, The Creator Signs TV Deal With Sony
Tyler, The Creator hit us with “Puff,” “Bucket,” “Sprint,” and “Fawn” last month and now he’s signed an exclusive television deal with Sony Pictures.
Tyler and his partner Lionel Boyce will create scripted and unscripted content for Sony under the umbrella of their Bald Face Productions company. This isn’t his first crack at TV either as he’s been involved with Adult Swim’s The Jellies! and Loiter Squad in the past.
Sony’s television President Jeff Frost said this:
“To be partnering with the creative genius of Tyler, the Creator and Lionel Boyce is a dream come true for us as we’ve long been fans of their work. Tyler’s unconventional ingenuity is unparalleled, and we are excited about the prospect of what we can create together.”
“Sony Pictures Television has been a hub for great television for many decades and we’re excited to be a part of a place where we will have the resources to develop new ideas.” Tyler chimed in saying “Tacos are great with bar-b-que sauce, I’m excited.”
Congratulations to everyone involved in the deal.
