Tyler, the Creator inks deal with Sony Pictures Television
Tyler, the Creator is poised to step back from the mic and direct his creative attentions instead to the development of a series of visuals designed for the small screen. The artist recently inked a first-look deal with Sony Pictures Television that will place Tyler alongside Lionel Boyce to design scripted and unscripted material for TV and digital properties projects. The second constituent of Tyler’s Bald Face Productions team, which positions Tyler at the helm of production, Boyce championed Sony Pictures Television as a particularly dynamic content platform. “We’re excited to be a part of a place where we will have the resources to develop new ideas,” Boyce said of the deal.
Ever eccentric in his quotations, Tyler chimed in with “Tacos are great with barbecue sauce, I’m excited,” the meaning of which currently remains up for debate, but could allude to a forthcoming sketch. The president of Sony Pictures Television, Jeff Frost, called the combination of Tyler and Boyce “creative genius” and touted Sony’s partnership with the duo as a “dream come true.” “Tyler’s unconventional ingenuity is unparalleled, and we are excited about the prospect of what we can create together,” Frost added.
