A very big congratulations to Top 10 Launch Pad writer Max Perry, who has signed with Adam Kolbrenner and Chris Cook at Madhouse Entertainment. Perry wrote the grounded sci-fi drama PROSPECT, which takes place after a massive mineral-rich asteroid crashed down in Africa and left endless destruction in its wake. After the dust has settled, we follow a family trying to start over in this new world, as the mystery, action and geopolitics of the event still boil, and the land surrounding the asteroid has now become the most valuable real estate in the world… but at what costs.
Perry, who is currently working as a writers PA on Tim Kring & Gideo Raff’s new show “Dig”, is a Vassar College grad who moved to LA on the promise of it being filled with puppies and Tom Hanks. Which turned out to be mostly right, as his first gig was interning at Playtone. From there he dabbled in most everything Hollywood had to offer, from acting to working in development, to being an assistant in the trenches. His pairing with Madhouse, who have been aggressive in their moves into television, should be a perfect start to a launching career!
