Vin Diesel’s own One Race production company has teamed up with Universal Television to do a few different projects in the future. The first project will be a “television series complement” to the cult sci-fi film franchise Riddick and Diesel couldn’t be happier.
“I have dreamt about expanding the One Race brand into television and now we’ve found the perfect creative partners,” Diesel said in a statement.
Jennifer Salke, NBC Entertianment president, is also pretty stoked about the new deal saying “in addition to being a huge star for our feature divison, Vin is a true creative force as a producer.” She adds “after sitting down with him and his team at One Race Televison, it’s clear he will now also be an incredible asset to both the network and our television studio.
It’s nice to see everyone is happy because this sounds like it could be great for Riddick fans everywhere. The Riddick universe is one sci-fi mythos begging to be fleshed out even more and a television series can take it’s time to tell the stories it wants to tell. Keep an eye out for this one.
