GC Corp. has bought rights to Israeli TV series “Danny Hollywood,” assigning it to the venture capital fund’s production unit, Killer Films.
Story follows three time-traveling journalists investigating the mysterious death of a pop star. Killer will reset the skein in 1960s America.
TV project is the first such joint effort for the newly united Killer and GC. GC bought a 50% stake in Christine Vachon and Pamela Koffler’s indie film outfit last month and plans to aggressively increase output. GC’s Joseph Grinkorn and Adi Cohen say the fund is currently capitalized at north of $100 million.
Killer’s TV experience includes the miniseries “Mrs. Harris” for HBO and “This American Life” for Showtime.
