Jordan said: “It’s an exciting moment for Outlier Society. On behalf of myself and President of Production, Alana Mayo, we are thrilled to be entering into this partnership with Amazon Studios. In just a few short years they have become home to some of television’s most groundbreaking series and an extraordinary place for talent to create, with a cutting-edge business model that speaks to today’s audiences. Alongside the expert leadership at Amazon Studios, we can’t wait to unveil the fruits of this union.”

Jordan and Outlier Society Productions signed a first-look film deal with Warner Bros. Studios earlier this year. Founded in 2016, the company co-produced Jordan’s Emmy-nominated Fahrenheit 451. Upcoming projects include the WWII drama The Liberators, the sci-fi anime Roosterteeth series gen:LOCK, Raising Dion, and David Makes Man from Tarell Alvin McCraney (Moonlight).

“The key to Michael’s success, going back to the beginning of his career, has been his ability to elevate each role he has brought to life, often shattering stereotypes along the way. One of the reasons it’s so exciting to be in business with him, Alana and Outlier Society is because they are part of the new wave of creative talents emphasizing diversity both above and below the line, and using their success to empower others. We can’t wait to bring their vision to a global audience who is hungry for revolutionary, authentic content,” said Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios.
