The ‘Shameless’ grad is set to star in and exec produce the studio’s ‘Angelyne,’ which sources say will be the first show picked up for NBCUniversal’s forthcoming streaming platform.
Emmy Rossum’s post-Shameless career is going to be spent at Universal Content Productions.
The actress and director has signed a first-look overall deal with the cable- and streaming-focused studio. The pact extends Rossum’s relationship with UCP, for whom she is starring in and executive producing the limited series Angelyne, based on The Hollywood Reporter’s feature story about the life of the Los Angeles billboard diva. Sources say Angelyne is being picked up by NBCUniversal’s forthcoming streaming service as its first scripted original.
Under the pact, Rossum will develop premium scripted content for the studio under her newly launched Composition 8 banner. Rossum joins her husband, Mr. Robot creator Sam Esmail, at the studio. Esmail, who recently renewed his deal with UCP, is exec producing Angelyne alongside Rossum.
“Emmy is an amazing talent and a force of nature. Over this past year we have had the pleasure of working closely with her as a producer and know firsthand that her talents know no bounds. We are lucky to have this triple threat in our family,” UCP and Wilshire Studios president Dawn Olmstead said Wednesday in a statement.
Rossum is fresh off a nine-season run on Showtime’s Shameless, where she played the eldest sibling and matriarch of the rag-tag Gallagher family. Rossum made her directorial debut on Shameless (produced by Warner Bros. TV) and went on to helm two episodes of the series, as well as installments of TNT’s Animal Practice and Amazon’s upcoming Modern Love.
“The opportunity to tell stories is a gift and there has been no greater time than now for women to lead the charge. I am thrilled to be partnering with UCP to create opportunity for new and diverse voices,” said Rossum, who famously fought for and achieved salary parity with Shameless male lead William H. Macy.
Rossum will star as Angelyne, the L.A.-raised daughter of Holocaust survivors and self-created pop culture icon, in the limited series based on THR’s award-winning senior writer Gary Baum’s investigative feature. Baum will serve as a consultant — and character — on the drama after spending months researching Angelyne’s past. The series is the first scripted TV adaptation of a Hollywood Reporter article since the publication’s reinvention as a weekly magazine and home for longform journalism. Oscar nominee Nancy Oliver (Lars and the Real Girl) will pen the script and exec produce alongside Esmail and his Esmail Corp banner, Anonymous Content’s Chad Hamilton and Baum.
Rossum joins a roster of producers with deals at UCP including Esmail, Charlize Theron, John Carpenter and Kathleen Robertson, among others. Rossum’s pact arrives as the overall deals space continues to remain red-hot with outlets like NBCUniversal, Disney and WarnerMedia planning streaming services of their own in a bid to compete with Netflix. The latter ignited a war for top talent after signing broadcast-based super-producers Ryan Murphy and Shonda Rhimes to exclusive overall deals. Since then, traditional studios like UCP and ABC Studios have been aggressive in pursuing top talent for overall deals, with the price tags often reaching eight and nine figures.
Angelyne will mark the second time Rossum and Esmail have worked together. They met while Esmail was making his directorial debut, Comet, in which Rossum starred. The couple married in May 2017.
Rossum, whose credits also include The Phantom of the Opera, Mystic River, Beautiful Creatures, Poseidon and The Day After Tomorrow, is repped by CAA, MGMT Entertainment and Felker Toczek.
NBCUniversal’s unnamed streaming platform is expected to launch in 2020. The ad-supported, direct-to-consumer platform will be overseen by Bonnie Hammer.

While Sophie Turner is in the midst of planning her long-awaited wedding to Joe Jonas, she had one last appearance to make as Sansa Stark: the premiere of Game of Thrones’s final season. Turner walked the red carpet in a dramatic smokey eye paired with glossy side-parted waves, a stark contrast to her character’s gritty red locks. Meanwhile, Emmy Rossum, who just made her final appearance on her own long-running series, Shameless, stepped out at the opening of Hermès’s new boutique in New York City’s Meatpacking District while showing off a head of wild curls and matte red lips. Also this week, the actress and model Hari Nef transformed her look by dyeing her hair bold shades of pink and violet, and Jorja Smith posed for a selfie while sporting braids and a luminous complexion. Here, a look at the best beauty moments on Instagram this week.
The fourth annual “Benefit to Save Them All” highlighted the Best Friends Animal Society’s goal of making America reach “no-kill” nationwide by 2025.
If there’s one thing that can bring people together during peak partisanship, it seems to be cats and dogs.
“I feel like there’s a lot of heaviness going on,” Lauren Ash told The Hollywood Reporter at the Best Friends Animal Society’s “Benefit to Save Them All” on Wednesday. “Certainly there’s a lot of dissension, but I think that animals are something we can all agree need help.”
Ash, along with Amanda Seyfried, Emmy Rossum and Justin Theroux — who received the second-ever “Save Them All” Spotlight Award — joined members of the organization in New York City to celebrate the progress being made in the “no-kill” movement.
“Every year, about a million animals die in this country just because they don’t have space. There’s nowhere for them to go. So for us, it’s all about finding those million animals a home,” said Best Friends CEO Julie Castle. “And our entire goal right now is to end the killing of animals in shelters by 2025. We’ve got a lot of support behind it, but the public really is the answer.”
According to Castle, before Best Friends was created, the number of animals dying due to a lack of space was actually 17 million. Today, a mere five states make up 50 percent of the animals being killed: California, Texas, Florida, Georgia and North Carolina. However, one of the first cities that could potentially be declared “no-kill” is actually in California.
“When we started, 56,000 animals were entering L.A. shelters, and they had about a 50 percent save rate,” Castle said. “Today, that save rate is right around 90 percent.”
Rossum, who instead of creating a traditional registry for her wedding asked for donations to Best Friends, said that she’s “so impressed” that an organization can have such a large impact “in a very real way that’s extremely tangible.”
“Living in Los Angeles so much, I’ve been so impressed with the incredible work they’ve done to move L.A. so much closer to becoming the country’s first real no-kill city,” said the actress.
Throughout the evening, the stars on the red carpet were joined by dogs and cats available for adoption. Theroux, however, brought his own dog.
“I don’t think of it as me being honored, I think of it as her being honored,” he said.
Castle praised the actor, saying he’s “such an iconic person and figure, and the fact that he’s so passionate about animals really helps us spread our message.”
Seyfried, who won the award last year, presented the honor to Theroux. Her priority remains educating people about the importance of animal adoption. “It’s, like, almost impossible not to know about what rescue actually means and how big of a difference it makes for animals,” said the actress.
