In an exciting collaboration, Audible and Amazon MGM Studios have announced that the creator and executive producer of “Suits,” Aaron Korsh, along with Suits executive producer Rick Muirragui, will adapt Marc Fennell’s podcast series “Nut Jobs” into a one-hour drama series for TV.

The Australian Audible Original podcast was released in 2020 and looked at the incredible true story of a $10 million heist that had been largely unknown until then. It explored crime syndicates, stolen identities, and private investigators, offering a fresh perspective on food.

Audible Inc., known for its premium audio storytelling content, and Amazon MGM Studios will co-develop and co-produce a range of Audible Originals as series in development. This collaboration aims to accelerate the craft of storytelling by bringing compelling narratives and complex characters to life through visual mediums.

Rachel Ghiazza, Chief Content Officer at Audible, expressed her excitement about collaborating with Amazon MGM Studios on this new endeavour: “All of the titles in this formidable slate of adaptations feature compelling and inspired narratives… We believe that this is a pivotal and transformative moment for Audible.”
