Charlize Theron is pushing further into the TV space.

The actor and her Denver & Delilah production banner have inked a two-year first-look deal with HBO and HBO Max, Variety has confirmed.

Under the deal, Theron and her company will develop TV projects for both the premium cabler and the streamer, looking to add to its TV slate which previously included David Fincher’s “Mindhunter,” and “Girlboss,” the series created by Kay Cannon. On the unscripted front, Denver & Delilah produced car series “Hyperdrive.”

Andrew Haas, who recently joined the company, will oversee Denver & Delilah’s television slate. The company was previously under a first-look at Universal Cable Productions.

Theron managers the outfit, which is named after her dogs, alongside her producing partners Beth Kono and AJ Dix. Denver & Delilah’s past feature credits include “Monster,” for which Theron won an Oscar, the Jason Reitman-directed films “Young Adult” and “Tully,” the Rosamund Pike-led drama “A Private War,” and Universal and Focus Features’ “Atomic Blonde.”

Back in 2017, Variety spoke with Theron about making the move into producing because she wanted her voice heard on behind-the-scenes decisions.

“I really think I became a producer because I love the nuance of storytelling,” Theron said.

Denver & Delilah is represented by WME, Hansen, Jacobson, Teller, Hoberman, Newman, Warren, Richman, Rush, Kaller & Gellman, LLP and The Lede Company.

The Hollywood Reporter first broke the deal news.
