Ryan Coogler Signs 5 Year Exclusive Deal with Disney

It's been announced that Ryan Coogler and Disney have made a five-year overall exclusive television deal. The deal is with Coogler's Proximity Media, the company he runs with principals Zinzi Coogler, Sev Ohanian, Ludwig Göransson, Archie Davis, and Peter Nicks.

"Ryan Coogler is a singular storyteller whose vision and range have made him one of the standout filmmakers of his generation. With Black Panther, Ryan brought a groundbreaking story and iconic characters to life in a real, meaningful, and memorable way, creating a watershed cultural moment. We're thrilled to strengthen our relationship and look forward to telling more great stories with Ryan and his team," said Bob Iger, Executive Chairman, The Walt Disney Company. 

The deal will include a Black Panther based Disney+ series, which will be a drama set in Wakanda.

"It's an honor to be partnering with The Walt Disney Company. Working with them on Black Panther was a dream come true. As avid consumers of television, we couldn't be happier to be launching our television business with Bob Iger, Dana Walden, and all the amazing studios under the Disney umbrella. We look forward to learning, growing, and building a relationship with audiences all over the world through the Disney platforms. We are especially excited that we will be taking our first leap with Kevin Feige, Louis D'Esposito, Victoria Alonso, and their partners at Marvel Studios where we will be working closely with them on select MCU shows for Disney+. We're already in the mix on some projects that we can't wait to share," stated Ryan Coogler on behalf of Proximity Media," said Coogler.

Coogler is also currently working on another "Black Panther" film.
