*Amazon Studios has put in development an untitled drama from “The Boondocks” creator Aaron McGruder and film producer Will Packer, reports Deadline.com.
The plot is being kept on the low for now, but is said to revolve around an alternate universe like “The Man in the High Castle.” McGruder will executive produce with Norman Aladjem and Packer.
McGruder, who won a Peabody Award for his animated television series “The Boondocks,” also co-created live-action comedy series Black Jesus — currently in its third season on Adult Swim — which he executive produces with Aladjem.
Packer has produced eight No. 1 films at the box office, including both “Ride Along,” “Think Like a Man” and their sequels as well as “No Good Deed,” “Takers,” “Stomp the Yard” and “Obsessed.”
