Project will be produced by Darby Parker via his Williamsburg Media Cult production banner. Michael Curry also will produce alongside Barbarian’s Aaron Kaufman, Ron Hartenbaum and Douglas Kuber. Benderspink’s Chris Bender, JC Spink and Jake Weiner exec produce along with Michael LaFetra and Bryan Brucks.
