Silver Lining, led by partners Jeff Golenberg, Sam Maydew and Rob Golenberg, already has a number of projects in development at A+E Studios. The company has acquired the podcast and underlying rights for Soul Incarcerated, a project based on the musicians in the band Edge of Darkness and the album they recorded while incarcerated, Eyes of Love. Dorian Missick, Warren Ostergard and Jamie Pietras are attached to produce, and a search for a writer is underway. Silver Lining also has set up End Times, a comedy about the rapture and those left behind, from Black List writer Brit McAdams, and female-driven thriller Nightshade from up-and-coming writer Jessica Granger.
