First Look Media’s Topic studio has unveiled its development slate for scripted TV series, with projects from Alex Garcia Lopez, Erin Foley-Chan and Channing Tatum’s production company Free Association.
Hunger, written by Garcia Lopez, is a geopolitical thriller about the powerful, covert and dangerous business of the global food industry. With nods to Traffic and The Night Manager, the hour-long series promises to be a provocative, uncompromising and international drama exposing an urgent and imminent crisis relatively unknown to the world.
Trying, written by Foley-Chan, is part of a first look deal with executive producer Daniel Powell. The half hour comedy follows Erin Foley-Chan, a chronic people-pleaser who can’t resist helping everyone around her. When told that she is infertile and cannot have a child without arduous treatments, she’s forced to deal with her own problems, for once.
