IM Global Television Sets First-Look Pact With David Goyer

Writer-producer David Goyer has set a first-look pact with IM Global Television.

Goyer, a screenwriter on Christopher Nolan’s three “Batman” films in addition to a slew of other fantasy and sci-fi films, is developing two projects with the indie distributor run by Stuart Ford. Mark Stern, head of IM Global Television, said Goyer and his producing partner, Kevin Turen, are in sync with the type of fantasy and supernatural dramas that IM Global wants to bring to television.

“David and Kevin are the top creative and producing talents in our field,” Stern said. “Their taste and expertise are a perfect fit for the type of content we are focusing on. ”

Goyer said IM Global was appealing because of its independence and the ability if offers his Phantom Four banner to work with buyers across the landscape, unlike larger studios affiliated with networks.

“Kevin and I were looking to do something outside the box. Because the television landscape is changing so quickly and dramatically, we wanted to find partners who were nimble, who could partner with any buyer, and who had a uniquely global outlook. Stuart and Mark fit that criteria perfectly,” Goyer said.

Phantom Four is already working on two development projects for IM Global. “I, Rebel” is a story about an astronaut stranded for eight years in space who returns to find people of enslaved by aliens. Goyer joins Jane Fleming and Mark Ordesky as exec producers.

“Golden State” is an anthology series chronicling the history of the Los Angeles Police Department over the past 150 years, with each season jumping forward by a generation. Jake Lee Hanne is on board to write the series, with Turen and Linne Radmin of the Radmin Co. attached as producers.

Goyer’s past TV credits include the drama “Da Vinci’s Demons,” which ran for three seasons on Starz. He was co-creator of NBC’s DC Comics-inspired “Constantine.” At present he’s developing a drama series, “Brooklyn Animal Control,” for USA Network.
