Ahh! Yes! Jesse’s ‘Iron Ocean Productions’ has jsut inked a deal with Universal Cable which will produce and get Jesse’s material out there.
This doesn’t mean she is going to act in any of the shows that make it to air, but it’ll be cool to watch content that comes from Jess. Check out the press release from Variety:
Universal Cable Prods. is in growth mode, striking separate pod deals with production banners run by Steve Carell and Jessica Biel.
The pacts with Carell’s Carousel Television and Biel’s Iron Ocean Prods. come as NBCUniversal’s cable production studio is revving up development and production activity under the leadership of Jeff Wachtel, prexy-chief content officer NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment Group.
Iron Ocean, headed by Biel and Michelle Purple, is working on two projects to start. Dramedy “Pop Culture,” from writer Melissa Hilfers, centers on a high-living New York City bachelor who changes his lifestyle — and hires an actress to play his wife — after babysitting his nephew. “Royal Pains” scribe Michael Rauch is on board as an exec producer.
Feature scribes Geoff Moore and David Posamentier are developing “Moguls,” a half-hour workplace laffer about about 20-somethings employed at a family-owned Colorado ski resort that is shaken up when the mountain it sits on is purchased by a corporate behemoth.
“It’s been great to find a home at UCP,” Biel said.
