Asylum Inks First-Look Deal with New York Post


Asylum Entertainment Group has signed a first-look production deal with the New York Post to adapt its IP into premium documentary features and series.

Under the agreement, Asylum will have the first look on all New York Post stories for adaptation across all production companies under its banner. Asylum previously adapted a New York Post report in Hillsong: A Megachurch Exposed.

“The New York Post boasts an impressive history in unearthing some of the most fascinating, headline-grabbing stories throughout the world,” said Steve Michaels, CEO of Asylum Entertainment Group. “Through our continued collaboration, we’re able to reach new audiences and dive into complex elements and perspectives through TV’s storytelling devices.”

Troy Searer, president of New York Post Entertainment, added, “The AEG team implicitly understands how to adapt for television both the high-end journalism and brash attitude of the New York Post. We’re excited to build on this already successful collaboration.”
