“Seth, Evan and James are the masters of subversive, renegade humor who make coming to work both fun and funny every single day,” said Lionsgate Television Group chair and chief creative officer Kevin Beggs. “From ‘The Boys’ to ‘Sausage Party,’ they are true trendsetters with their fingers on the pulse of what’s funny in entertainment. We began shooting their hilarious, wildly inventive half-hour comedy for Apple TV+ and can hardly wait to see what they do next.”

Who could ask for more?” said Rogen, Goldberg and Weaver. “We look forward to continuing to push the creative envelope with them.”

Ashley Morales negotiated the deal on behalf of Lionsgate Television.
