YouTube is launching a slate of originals designed to promote climate change and sustainability with projects including a Leonardo DiCaprio-produced wildlife adventure series.

The company has ordered three new series – Seat at the Table, Shut It Off ASAP and Stay Wild (w/t) – and is back with more episodes of Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s Create Together, BookTube and Kid Correspondent.

It comes ahead of Earth Day on April 22 and is part of Google’s focus on climate action, which includes the tech company’s plan to use only carbon-free energy by 2030.

Stay Wild (w/t) will explore Earth’s critically endangered environments through a series of immersive adventures with Mark Vins including an expedition through the treacherous, sloping rainforest of Rwanda in an attempt to find the last of the wild mountain gorillas. It is produced by DiCaprio’s Appian Way, Ginny & Georgia producer Madica Productions and YouTube channel Brave Wilderness.

Seat At The Table follows YouTube creator and climate advocate Jack Harries, as he highlights the devastating impacts and innovative solutions to climate change. The 12-part series will see him meet the likes of Sir David Attenborough and confront some of the most powerful people on the planet and demand action from those truly on the frontline of the climate emergency at United Nations Climate Change Conference. It is produced by Colin Butfield, Jonnie Hughes and Helga Berry.

Shut It Off ASAP (w/t) follows YouTube creators AsapSCIENCE – two city boys – leaving their comfort zone and heading to the country. Part The Simple Life and part I Bought a Farm, Mitch and Greg find themselves on a remote farm, trying their hand at going green, regenerative farming, and building a sustainable lifestyle. They’ll be joined by FarmTubers, experts, and other YouTube creators who will help execute their vision of living off the grid and deliver takeaways that can be replicated back at home. It is produced by YouTube Entertainment Studios.

The company is also bringing back Kid Correspondent for three sustainability-themed episodes. The show, from SoulPancake, first aired as a four-part election themed special in 2020 and centers around the next generation of kid journalists dedicated to making the world a better place and helping other kids develop the necessary skills to one day become more informed and involved grown-ups.

These four shows will air in October 2021.

They come as the Google-owned video platform is launching season two of Create Together and BookTube with Bill Gates on Earth Day, April 22.

The company also has a number of sustainability partnerships; it has partnered with Global Citizen on Global Citizen Live, an event that will feature performances from around the world on September 25, and is working with TED on Countdown, a global initiative to champion and accelerate solutions to the climate crisis that includes content from the Countdown Summit on October 12-15.

“Climate change presents a variety of enormous, complicated challenges that urgently need the world’s attention and collective action. In line with Google’s long standing commitment to climate action, YouTube is proud to announce key partnerships and a growing slate of Originals that will provide our massive global audiences access to compelling content with a focus on sustainability,” said Susanne Daniels, Global Head of Original Content for YouTube, “We are committed to producing even more projects that can inform viewers, inspire action, and ultimately improve our chances at making a more sustainable future for our planet.”

Leonardo DiCaprio, Meryl Streep and Timothee Chalamet will join Jennifer Lawrence in the star-studded cast of “Don’t Look Up,” a new Netflix comedy from Adam McKay.

Jonah Hill and Himesh Patel will also star, along with Ariana Grande, Kid Cudi and Matthew Perry. As previously announced, Cate Blanchett and Rob Morgan are part of the cast.

McKay, the filmmaker behind “Step Brothers,” “Anchorman,” “Talladega Nights” and “The Big Short,” wrote and directed “Don’t Look Up,” which follows two low-level astronomers who embark on a media tour to warn mankind of an impending asteroid that could destroy the planet. Lawrence and DiCaprio are expected to play the two astronomers, but Netflix would not confirm.

The movie is scheduled to start filming before the end of the year.

McKay is also producing the film with Kevin Messick under McKay’s Hyperobject Industries banner.

Ahead of “Don’t Look Up,” DiCaprio is starring in Martin Scorsese’s “Killers of the Flower Moon” adaptation. Streep has another Netflix film, Ryan Murphy’s “The Prom,” up next, along with Steven Soderbergh’s HBO Max comedy “Let Them All Talk.” Chalamet, who previously starred with Streep in Greta Gerwig’s “Little Women” remake, has “Dune,” “The French Dispatch” and James Mangold’s Bob Dylan biopic “Going Electric” on deck. Patel, the breakout of Universal’s musical rom-com “Yesterday,” recently appeared in Christopher Nolan’s “Tenet.”

McKay’s most recent movie, “Vice” — a scathing biopic about former Vice President Dick Cheney — was nominated for eight Oscars, including best picture. McKay won an Academy Award for 2015’s “The Big Short,” nabbing the prize for adapted screenplay.

Appian Way Productions’ Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Davisson have set the production company into a multi-picture, multi-year first look deal with Sony Pictures Entertainment to produce scripted feature films. The companies are already in development on two projects and the deal comes off DiCaprio’s turn in the Quentin Tarantino-directed Best Picture nominee Once Upon A Time…In Hollywood.

Deal follows one that Appian Way made at Apple for TV projects and documentaries.

Said Sony Pictures Motion Picture Group Chairman Tom Rothman: “I first met the supernova talented Leonardo DiCaprio over 24 years ago on Romeo and Juliet. We then shipped out together on the Titanic and my admiration for him as a fully-rounded filmmaking genius has only increased over the many years since. His producing and acting instincts — superbly supported by Jennifer — are both driven by service to the best material in the world. At Sony, we feel like we just landed a rare GOAT deal — as Michael Jordan and Tom Brady are to basketball and football, so is Leo to film.”

Said DiCaprio: “For over three decades in the business, Tom has never adhered to the traditional Hollywood norms. Never once taking the safe route, he truly values filmmakers and their vision and is extremely supportive of the theatre-going experience. I could not be more excited to enter into a new phase of partnerships with Sony.”

Appian Way’s last deal had been at Warner Bros. He won the Best Actor Oscar for The Revenant, and has been nominated six other times, the last being Sony and Tarantino’s love letter to Hollywood, Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood. Appian Way productions include The Revenant, and the Martin Scorsese-directed The Wolf of Wall Street, The Aviator, and Shutter Island.

Appian Way is repped by LBI Entertainment.

Leonardo DiCaprio’s Appian Way and In Good Company Films are developing the utopian series “Island,” based on Aldous Huxley’s novel “Island.”

Huxley’s final book, published in 1962, follows a cynical journalist shipwrecked on the fictional utopian island of Pala in the Indian Ocean. Originally tasked with exploiting Pala’s natural resources, he uncovers an independently developed society and embraces the people, their culture and traditions — including psychedelic adventures and alternative social structures. His experience alters the course of his mission.

Huxlery wrote “Island” as the utopian counterpoint to his most famous work, the 1932 dystopian novel, “Brave New World.” “Island” explores the themes of freedom and the power of human potential. Huxley died of cancer in 1963.

Davisson and DiCaprio will executive produce for Appian Way along with George DiCaprio and Roee Sharon. Andrew Alter and Jason Whitmore will executive produce for IGC Films.

Appian Way launched in 2004 as a production company and has producing credits on more than a dozen feature films, including “The Aviator,” “Shutter Island,” “The Ides of March,” “Runner Runner,” “The Wolf of Wall Street,” “The Revenant,” “Robin Hood” and “Richard Jewell.”

Appian Way worked with Netflix on the documentaries “Virunga,” “Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret,” “The Ivory Game,” “How to Change the World” and “Catching the Sun” and with National Geographic on “Sea of Shadows.” The company’s television credits include “Greenberg,” the “Grant” miniseries on History and the upcoming “The Right Stuff” miniseries for Disney Plus.

Netflix and Leonardo DiCaprio are reteaming for a feature adaptation to the documentary Virunga, which will be written by Oscar-winning Moonlight helmer Barry Jenkins. The Oscar-nominated docu, written and directed by Orlando von Einsiedel, was released on the streamer in 2014 and picked up an Oscar nomination.

DiCaprio, who served as an executive producer on the docu, is producing the project with his Appian Way partners Jennifer Davisson and Phillip Watson as well as Oscar-winner Joanna Natasegara for London-based Violet Films. von Einsiedel will serve as exec producer.

The true story follows rangers risking their lives to save Africa’s most precious national park and its endangered gorillas.

Jenkins, who was also lauded for his adaptation of James Baldwin’s If Beale Street Could Talk, is attached to direct Fox Searchlight’s biopic about Alvin Ailey, one of the most influential choreographers of the 20th Century. He also penned the screenplay to Rachel Morrison’s directorial debut, Flint Strong, and has a series adaptation of Colson Whitehead’s bestselling novel The Underground Railroad forthcoming on Amazon.

Deadline hears that the tug of war over one of the highest profile films in Hollywood is about over. Apple will win the derby for the Martin Scorsese-directed film Killers Of The Flower Moon, with Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese in the lead roles. The deals are being papered — Paramount still has to sign off — but I’m told when they are, it will be an Apple original film, and Paramount will distribute theatrically worldwide.

Paramount had long ago acquired the project from Imperative Entertainment, but in recent weeks had allowed Scorsese and DiCaprio’s manager Rick Yorn to shop it around. Sources said that the studio was nervous about a price tag of $180 million to $200 million after tax credits from an Oklahoma location shoot, and studio brass liked the original Eric Roth draft better than the rewrite. Once Paramount allowed Yorn to take it to market, all studios from Universal to MGM and streamers including Scorsese’s The Irishman backer Netflix and Apple, have been chasing.

The deal, which calls for Apple to finance and become the creative studio, gives the movie a hybrid situation and the best of both worlds. The film will get a wide theatrical release through Paramount before it becomes the biggest film title so far on Apple’s streaming service. A big priority was for this a large scale Western and that was important to Scorsese, DiCaprio, De Niro and the film’s producers Dan Friedkin and Bradley Thomas at Imperative.

It’s the second huge movie deal for Apple, which Deadline recently revealed acquired Greyhound, the WWII film that stars Tom Hanks, who wrote the script. Clearly, Apple is making its move.

Killers of the Flower Moon has had a large profile since Imperative’s Friedkin and Thomas put the company on the map five years ago by outbidding the field to pay $5 million for the David Grann book Killers Of The Flower Moon: The Osage Murders And The Birth Of The FBI. The book is a mystery about a series of murders of wealthy Osage Native Americans in Oklahoma in the early 1920s, after oil deposits were discovered beneath their land. The ensuing investigation established the FBI and was a pivotal moment in the evolution of America from its frontier era.

Roth wrote the script and Scorsese and DiCaprio signed on early, with De Niro agreeing to join later. This is landmark stuff, Scorsese joining together his two most important acting collaborators, who haven’t worked together meaningfully in a film since This Boy’s Life, a breakout turn for DiCaprio, who has credited De Niro with showing him the possibilities that hard work could mean to an emerging actor/superstar.
