The deal with Joseph Sikora’s Black Fox Productions follows his character Tommy Egan tapped to center the Starz spinoff series ‘Power Book IV: Force.’
Joseph Sikora, best known as Tommy Egan on Starz’s Power franchise, has signed a first-look deal for his Black Fox Productions banner with Lionsgate TV.
The deal follows Sikora’s character being named to star in the upcoming new installment of the franchise, Power Book IV: Force. Joseph’s brother, Albin Sikora, has joined Black Fox Productions to handle day-to-day operations.
Albin got his start at ICM in New York before more recently serving as director of public affairs at Weber Shandwick in Washington, DC for seven years.
Sikora, who just received a SAG Award nomination for his role as Frank Cosgrove Jr. in the Netflix series Ozark, will look to create TV storylines based in part from his native Chicago. “We are looking to fill our canon with stories that expose the inner workings of the city, that follow the establishment of modern day institutions and laws, and that define often-ignored pockets of the urban landscape,” Sikora said in a statement.
Power Book IV:Force will follow Tommy Egan after he cuts ties and puts New York in his rearview mirror for good. Robert Munic will serve as showrunner on the series and executive produce alongside Power creator Courtney A. Kemp and Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson.
The show joins Ghost and prequel series Power Book III: Kanan on Starz. A fifth show in the franchise is also in the works.
Sikora is repped by APA, Myrna Jacoby and Patrick Keane at MJ Management, and Rick Genow at Goodman, Genow, Schenkman, Smelkinson, & Christopher.
