The “Assassin’s Creed” live-action series at Netflix has enlisted Jeb Stuart to serve as writer, Variety has learned exclusively from sources.

The deal includes live-action, animated, and anime series. Ubisoft Film & Television’s Jason Altman and Danielle Kreinik serve as executive producers.
Reps for Netflix and Stuart did not immediately respond to Variety‘s request for comment.
Stuart most recently created the Netflix series “Vikings: Valhalla,” a continuation of the History Channel series “Vikings.” No premiere date for the series has been set at the time of this publishing. He is also known for his work writing hit films like “Die Hard,” “Another 48 Hours,” and “The Fugitive.”
He is repped by UTA and Kaplan / Perrone Entertainment.
