TYLER TO CREATE FOR FILM, TV WITH SONY

Sony Pictures Entertainment has signed a first-look deal with Tyler, the Creator and Lionel Boyce’s Bald Fade Productions for new scripted and unscripted projects for television and new media.

Under the agreement, the companies will work together to develop original concepts from Tyler and Boyce whose credits include The Jellies! and Loiter Squad. A Columbia Records artist, Tyler contributes two songs to Universal Pictures’ upcoming The Grinch.

“We’ve long been fans of their work,” said SPT President Jeff Frost.  “Tyler’s unconventional ingenuity is unparalleled, and we are excited about the prospect of what we can create together.”

Boyce and Tyler formed Bald Fade Productions in 2015, writing and developing original film and television content. Writer/actor/producer Boyce and Tyler co-wrote and produced the original animated series The Jellies!. 

“Sony Pictures Television has been a hub for great television for many decades and we're excited to be a part of a place where we will have the resources to develop new ideas,” Boyce said. 

Normally we’d insert a joke here, but Tyler did it for us. “Tacos are great with bar-b-que sauce, I’m excited,” he actually said. Touche.
