The two companies previously worked together on Netflix’s short-lived “Cowboy Bebop.”

“This is an exciting time for growth as an independent television production company, and we are thrilled that the talented team of writers and producers at Midnight Radio has agreed to work alongside us to develop and produce even more riveting projects for today’s television audience,” Tomorrow Studios CEO Marty Adelstein and President and Partner Becky Clements added.

Tomorrow Studios currently has production deals with Julia Garner through Alma Margo, Frank Spotnitz through Big Light Productions, and with Craig Gillespie. In addition to “Physical” and “Let the Right One In,” the company produced TNT’s “Snowpiercer” and HBO Max’s “10 Year Old Tom.” It will also be producing another Netflix live-action series based on a beloved anime — “One Piece.”

As for Midnight Radio, it’s best known for producing MGM+’s “From,” Hulu’s “High Fidelity,” Netflix’s “Everything Sucks” and most recently Amazon Prime Video’s “Citadel.” On the film side of things, Pinkner and Rosenberg wrote both “Jumanji” and “Jumanji 2” as well as “Venom” for Sony. Meanwhile, Appelbaum and Nemec are best known for writing “Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol” as well as both “Ninja Turtles” movies for Paramount.
