“Gemma’s fantastic taste and her commitment to strange, special, provocative genre storytelling make her a perfect new partner for Eat the Cat,” Antosca said in a statement. “I’m thrilled she’s joining our small team—and I’m so excited about everything we’re already working on together.”

Eat the Cat has an overall deal Universal Studio Group’s UCP and is behind Syfy and USA’s Chucky, Hulu’s Candy and The Act — which recently got a viewing bump due to its subject, Gypsy Rose Blanchard, being back in the news — and Peacock’s A Friend of the Family.

Levinson will also work on several current projects in the works at Eat the Cat, including a Murdaugh Murders series for Hulu, a feature adaptation of Colleen Hoover’s Verity at Amazon and a Cape Fear series written by Antosca, which has sparked a bidding war from several outlets.
