HBO Gives Duplass Brothers Overall Deal

HBO Gives Duplass Brothers Overall Deal

What’s an overall deal? It’s a sign that Hollywood companies are back fighting for talent. The Duplass brothers have already pacted with Netflix to deliver four indie films. (And after smash “Pitch Perfect 2,” Elizabeth Banks is signing an overall producing deal with Warner Bros. TV.)

HBO wants workaholic multi-taskers Mark and Jay Duplass to deliver more series for them, following the renewal of their inexpensive comedy series “Togetherness,” whose second season will start in 2016, as well as the two-season pickup of Phil Matarese and Mike Luciano’s New York-set animated series “Animal” (2016), which debuted at Sundance.
