Hammer Family Saga Set for Limited Series


Talos Films has inked an exclusive deal with Casey Hammer to produce a limited series revealing the dark secrets and scandals surrounding her family.

Casey Hammer, author of Surviving My Birthright, reveals for the first time on camera the inside story of the Hammer family saga. From relatively humble beginnings, the Hammer family grew to control a powerful global business empire, with intimate access to Hollywood stars, top politicians, businessmen and royalty from around the world—but one that was allegedly founded on Soviet espionage, money laundering, routine bribery and deals with notorious dictators.

Hammer said: “As a survivor, I want to help empower others to speak up and know that they are heard.”

Elli Hakami and Julian P. Hobbs, co-founders of Talos Films, said: “The Hammer family history is like Succession on steroids. A dysfunctional dynasty with its male characters exhibiting all the devastating consequences of privilege gone wild. Now, for the first time, Casey Hammer will tell not just her story, but the definitive family history, leaving no stone unturned. With new unfolding revelations and present-day consequences, this miniseries will provide audiences with a riveting journey into a family where reputation is everything and where things are never how they appear.”
