Escape Artists Inks First-Look Pact with FX Prods.

FX Prods. has added another prominent film production company to its roster of development partners, signing a first-look pact with Escape Artists.

The deal marks the first TV foray for the banner founded in 2001 by producers Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal and Steve Tisch. The two-year production deal covers projects developed for FX Networks channels.

“Todd, Jason and Steve have amply proven their ability to engage audience on the big screen with features that inspire and amuse,” said Nick Grad, who is president of original programming for FX Networks and FX Prods. along with Eric Schrier. “We are honored to have this opportunity to help them extend their artistic vision and producing prowess to television on behalf of FX Networks.”

Escape Artists’ most recent feature release was the Denzel Washington starrer “The Equalizer.” Its upcoming pics include the boxing drama “Southpaw” penned by Kurt Sutter, creator/exec producer of FX’s “Sons of Anarchy.” Past pics include “The Pursuit of Happyness,” “The Weather Man” and “Hope Springs.”

FX Prods. last week struck a pact with director Danny Boyle’s Telly Novella Prods. It also has a first-look deal with Color Force, run by “Hunger Games” producers Nina Jacobson and Brad Simpson.

Escape Artists is repped for TV by UTA.
