Eisenberg is the co-creator, executive producer, and co-showrunner on Apple’s “Little America,” which is due to debut on Jan. 17 and has already been picked up for a second season.
Under the terms of the deal, Eisenberg will launch a new banner, Piece of Work Entertainment, and create television and digital media projects exclusively for Apple TV Plus. He has brought on Natalie Sandy as vice president of development for the company. Sandy was a producer on the first season of “Little America.”
Eisenberg is now one of few creators to sign an overall deal with Apple. He joins the ranks of others like Alfonso Cuaron, Kerry Ehrin, Jon M. Chu, Justin Lin, and Jason Katims.
He is six-time Emmy nominee, primarily for his time on “The Office” and also for “Hello Ladies: The Movie,” which was based on the HBO series that he co-created.
