The drama is set to be produced by the new company launched by Media Rights Capital (MRC), the US outfit behind Netflix’s House of Cards. The as-yet-unnamed prodco has been formed by MRC alongside Entertainment 360, the TV arm of talent agency Management 360, which represents Robbie.

The new firm is aiming to finance and produce an array of shows for all platforms and will use MRC’s production and distribution capabilities to provide opportunities for Management 360’s clients.

Nowhere Girls’ exec producers include Robbie and Kieran and Michele Mulroney – all on Management 360’s books – with Twilight’s Catherine Hardwicke directing.

MRC, headed by co-CEOs Asif Satchu and Modi Wiczyk, was one of the first companies to work with Netflix, adapting BBC political drama House of Cards for the streamer in 2013. It has since been behind crime drama Ozarks for the SVoD giant.

Entertainment 360 has worked on series such as Game of Thrones for HBO and The Terror for AMC.

Earlier this year, Satchu and Wiczyk were named heads of Valence Media, which combined companies owned by Eldridge Industries including MRC, Golden Globe Awards producer Dick Clark Productions and the Billboard-Hollywood Reporter Media Group. The latter first reported this latest news.
