Cord Jefferson , whose credits also include such acclaimed shows as Succession, The Good Place and Master of None, is set to create original programming for the studio under the contract. The new projects, which will span scripted and unscripted, will be made for HBO, HBO Max and other WarnerMedia-affiliated outlets, as well as external buyers. Cord Jefferson plans to create thoughtful character dramas and comedies, in addition to nonfiction projects; a callback to his roots as a journalist. He was most recently an executive story editor and writer for HBO’s limited series Watchmen, a Warner Bros TV production created by Damon Lindelof, which won him his first Emmy.

We’re looking forward to what Cord creates. Let us know what your thoughts are on the new scribe at HBO.
