Drea De Matteo signs with Endemol Beyond USA

Endemol Beyond USA has inked a deal with Emmy-winning actress Drea de Matteo (“Sons of Anarchy,” “The Sopranos”)  for her own original digital series.

Carter B. Smith (“Three Days”) will direct the series, titled “The Muthaship Starring Drea de Matteo,” and will launch this spring.

“Drea built her audience through her roles on some of the best series on television,” said Will Keenan, president, Endemol Beyond USA. “In her new original digital series, Drea and her friends are at the center of the story. She epitomizes the modern-day woman and is a natural fit for the unscripted digital format and beyond.”

Endemol Beyond launched last year and has signed other deals with singer Pitbull and pop icon Courtney Love. Love’s digital channel launched in February, along with her first vlogger-style web series #CourtneyOn, which is being produced by Endemol Beyond USA.

De Matteo was made a series regular on “Anarchy” in its seventh season.
