Paul Weitz is the executive producer and showrunner of Amazon’s “Mozart in the Jungle,” which won Golden Globe awards in January for best comedy or musical series and for star Gael García Bernal as best actor in a comedy or musical series. He also directed the recent feature film “Grandma.”
Chris Weitz is the writer of “Star Wars: Rogue One,” Disney’s first spin-off feature in the science fiction franchise, scheduled to premiere Dec. 14. He also rewrote the Fox 2000 feature “Mountains Between Us” and is set to direct the MGM feature “Eichmann.”
The Amazon deal extends to Depth of Field president Andrew Miano. The company produced director Tom Ford’s film “A Single Man” and is producing Judy Greer’s upcoming directorial debut “A Happening of Monumental Proportions.”
“We’re excited to continue our relationship with Paul and begin working with Depth of Field,” said Joe Lewis, Amazon Studios head of half-hour series. “Their focus on humanist stories and their desire to make unique series of remarkable quality fits perfectly here and is a great win for customers.”
