Seth Rogen and Michael B. Jordan are teaming up on a drama for Amazon. The two actors will executive produce a one-hour show called “Middle West” for the platform.
The show will focus on two Chicago-area FBI agents who get called to Indiana to investigate the murder of two police officers who were searching for missing young men. Amazon will work on production for the future series with Lionsgate TV.
Rogen, and frequent collaborator Evan Goldberg, will executive produce under their TV production company, Point Grey Pictures, while Jordan will executive produce under his banner Outlier Society.
This project expand’s Jordan’s working relationship with Amazon Studios. His company already has a first-look TV deal with the production company. Rogen and Goldberg’s Point Grey also has a contract with Lionsgate.
If this project is anything like Jordan or Rogen have done in the past, it’s sure to be something to get excited about.
