Josh Braun from Submarine negotiated the deal with Orion on behalf of the film-makers.
Fort Tilden was produced by Mollye Asher and Geoff Mansfield and executive producers Ariana Ciri Bernstein and Zach Gerbarg.
Bliss and Rogers have since signed on to write for Netflix’s upcoming series Wet Hot American Summer.
