Will Packer Aaron McGruder Amazon showAmazon is developing their next project and have called on the creative talent of producers Will Packer and Boondocks creator Aaron McGruder.

The pair are joining forces to create a new untitled drama for the streaming service and according to Deadline, the exact storyline is still a mystery “but is said to revolve around an alternate universe in the vein of The Man in the High Castle. McGruder will executive produce with Norman Aladjem and Packer.”

For those who haven’t had the chance to check The Man in the High Castle out yet, it’s Amazon’s original, based on the book of the same name, that is set in 1962 in an alternate universe that explores a world where the Axis powers won WWII.

Packer knows hits- he’s responsible for producing 8 box office hits (meaning they all landed the No. 1 spot) including Ride Along and Think Like a Man, as well as both films’ sequels. He’s also behind the Roots miniseries, Straight Outta Compton, the upcoming comedy Girls’ Trip and the new BET series The Quad.

McGruder is best known for his comic creation The Boondocks, which went on to become a hit Adult Swim TV series. He also created Adult Swim’s Black Jesus.
