Film and TV producer Bonnie Forbes’ newly launched production shingle has inked a first-look deal with Fortress Entertainment.
Pact with Bonnie Forbes Prods. was inked after Forbes brought the film project “P.D.R.” to Fortress. Fortress and Lionsgate are producing the sports drama, currently in production.
Under the terms of the first-look deal, Forbes will identify and develop TV series and features for Fortress, taking an exec producer credit.
Fortress and Basil Iwanyk’s Thunder Road are already developing “Bull,” based on the real-life stories of various bull-riding legends. Forbes secured the life rights of Donnie Gay, Bobby Delvecchio and Charles Sampson.
Bonnie Forbes Prods. and Fortress also are developing TV skein “Internal Affair,” about a posse of female cops determined to clean up their town. Skein was developed with Robert Schwartz, Orly Adelson and Shawn Schepps (“Weeds”).
