our fabel.

Created to bring commercial premium content to audiences worldwide, Fabel Entertainment focuses on character-first programming that crosses genres, platforms and cultures. Fabel will continue the legacy of its former success while expanding its slate into one that further supports diverse genres, first-time creators, original works, IP adaptation and international productions - all in a premium space.


Most recently Fabel concluded production on the seventh and final season of the hit show BOSCH for Amazon, based on Michael Connelly's bestselling book series and adapted by Eric Overmeyer, with Red Arrow serving as the studio. 


Fabel’s commitment to supporting both established creatives and fresh voices is at the heart of the company and its future slate, which includes a series based on the life and published works of world famous neurologist, OLIVER SACKS, as well as Chuck Palahniuk’s INVISIBLE MONSTERS, Stephen King’s THE TEN O’CLOCK PEOPLE, and several original works by first-time creators and veteran showrunners.
