Founder / CEO
Whether in film or television, Erik Oleson’s passion for storytelling has taken him into writing on a gamut of productions of every type and scope.
As writer, Showrunner and Executive Producer of the upcoming second season of “Carnival Row,” the series marks Oleson’s follow up to the critically acclaimed third and final season of “Marvel’s Daredevil,” which he served as Showrunner and Executive Producer. In the spirit of comic book runs, Oleson put his own stamp on “Marvel’s Daredevil”— crafting a dark, grounded, character-driven thriller, which raised the bar on the action Daredevil fans had come to love. Oleson is now busy developing multiple series under his exclusive multi-year deal with Amazon.
