About Lord and Miller

It has been a remarkable few years for Lord Miller who have a rich first-look production deal with Universal where they develop features in both comedy and drama that will hopefully serve as reboot material for future generations.

The pair is next producing the upcoming animated feature Connected which will be released October 2020.

On the television side, Lord Miller has a massive first look deal with Sony Pictures Television where they continue to develop live-action and animated series in both comedy and drama and is involved with developing a suite of television series based on Sony's Universe of Marvel Characters. It was recently announced that Lord Miller is behind the upcoming Apple series "The Afterparty" which is a murder-mystery comedy set at a high school reunion afterparty. Each of the eight episodes will feature a retelling of the same night told through a different character's perspective, each with its own unique visual format and film genre to match the teller's personality.
