According to Nnedi, the company will focus exclusively on television series because of the relative freedom TV affords:

“Film is too restrictive.”

Not much else is known about the company for now, but we can be expecting some high quality work from them because Nnedi’s novels are pretty incredible. She is is one of science fiction’s smartest and most successful voices.

She already has so many ongoing projects: Her novel, Who Fears Death is being produced by Games of Thrones‘ George R.R. Martin for HBO; and she is writing the script for Viola Davis’ Wild Seed, along with Rafiki director, Wanuri Kahiu.
