Reeves’ 6th & Idaho currently has a first-look film deal with Netflix and was previously set up with 20th Century Fox Television on the TV side. 6th & Idaho is currently producing the Netflix series “Away” and Amazon’s “Tales From the Loop,” and was in the middle of filming the NBC pilot “Ordinary Joe,” starring James Wolk, prior to the COVID-19 shutdown.
