Under the multiyear year deal, Goldsman and his Weed Road Pictures banner will collaborate with the studio to develop scripted dramas.
“I couldn’t be more excited to work with MGM,” said Goldsman. “Their creative and business acumen, thoughtful attention to storytelling, and excellent executives make them optimal collaborators in today’s ever-changing television landscape.”
On the television side, Goldsman was an executive producer on Wgn’s “Underground,“ and he is currently a co-creator and executive producer on CBS All Access’s “Star Trek: Picard” and DC’s “Titans.” In terms of his upcoming projects, Goldsman will write and exec produce MGM’s previously announced series “Ringworld,” based on Larry Niven’s classic 1970’s science fiction book, which is set up at Amazon. He will also produce “Aurora Rising” for the studio based on Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff’s Ya sci-fi thriller.
