Watchmen’s Cord Jefferson Signs Overall Deal with Warner Bros.


Warner Bros. Television Group (WBTVG) has secured an exclusive multiyear overall deal with Emmy-winning writer and producer Cord Jefferson (Watchmen).

Under terms of the partnership, Jefferson will create, develop and produce original programming to be produced by the studio, including drama series, comedies, long-form and unscripted projects for all platforms. This includes projects for HBO Max, HBO and other WarnerMedia-affiliated outlets, as well as external streaming services, premium and basic cable channels, and broadcast networks.

The agreement continues Jefferson’s relationship with WBTVG and WarnerMedia, as he most recently was an executive story editor and writer for the Emmy-winning HBO limited series Watchmen, produced by Warner Bros. Television.

In addition to Watchmen, Jefferson’s writing credits include HBO’s Succession, NBC’s The Good Place and Netflix’s Master of None.
