Hollywood Reporter reports on American Original & Top Cow
Studio executive turned comic book author turned producer Jeff Katz has launched American Original, an entertainment company aimed at supplying content across multiple platforms for geek consumers while providing services to creators working within the realm.
The company, which Katz sees as a "nerd machine" and hopes will be a voice for the comic book industry within Hollywood, will consist of multiple divisions, including publishing and film/television production.
American Original hits the ground running, with its publishing division, American Original Press, establishing a partnership with comic book publisher Top Cow Prods.
