New Series Focused on Wakanda Coming to Disney+ as Ryan Coogler Inks Deal with Disney

Ryan Coogler’s Proximity Media has inked a deal that will have it working exclusively with The Walt Disney Company for the next five years and also developing a series for Disney+ focused on the Kingdom of Wakanda. With this deal, Ryan Coogler and Proximity Media team members Zinzi Coogler, Sev Ohanian, Ludwig Göransson, Archie Davis and Peter Nicks will all be working with Disney.

“Ryan Coogler is a singular storyteller whose vision and range have made him one of the standout filmmakers of his generation,” said Bob Iger, Executive Chairman, The Walt Disney Company. “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.”

“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.

Proximity Media was founded by Ryan Coogler, Zinzi Coogler, Sev Ohanian, Ludwig Göransson, Archie Davis and Peter Nicks. It exists to “create event-driven feature films, television, soundtracks and podcasts that look to bring audiences closer together through stories involving often-overlooked subject matters.” It is committed to doing this by developing a wide variety of different projects that span different budget levels as well.

At this point, there are no other details regarding this deal or the series for Disney+ based on the Kingdom of Wakanda.
