Under the deal, Two for the Road and Kapital have sold their first project, procedural drama HSI: Puerto Rico, to CBS.
Additionally, the companies have optioned the book White Smoke by New York Times best selling author Tiffany D Jackson for TV development. Published in 2021, the YA psychological thriller is described as The Haunting of Hill House meets Get Out.
In HSI: Puerto Rico, written and executive produced by Lisa Morales (Queen Sugar), a hot-headed Homeland Security agent reluctantly returns home to Puerto Rico where she works with her talented but jaded training officer as part of an elite HSI team working tirelessly as the first line of defense against all manner of threats to the United States.
Puerto Rico-born and raised Sanchez and Winter executive produce via Two for the Road; Kaplan and Brian Morewitz executive produce for Kapital, which serves as the studio. Jessie Abbott is overseeing for Kapital.
Kaplan has known Sanchez and Winter for awhile, and Winter has starred in two Kapital series, GCB and Secrets and Lies, both on ABC.
“Ros, Eric and I have been longtime friends, and we have often talked about working together,” Kaplan said. “They have an impeccable eye for content, incredible relationships, and I’m looking forward to our producing partnership.”
Winter is repped by Gersh and Brillstein Entertainment. Sanchez is repped by APA andAlchemy. Both are also repped by attorney Bob Wallerstein.
Morales also served as showrunner of the CW’s Two Sentence Horror Stories anthology horror series.
