Project Brazen’s launch is covered in Variety and Deadline today!

Here’s a snippet from Variety:

The Wall Street Journal reporters who blew the lid off a $6 billion scandal are now launching an outfit that promises to lay bare more true stories from around the world.

Tom Wright and Bradley Hope have teamed for Project Brazen, a multi-platform journalism studio that will uncover global true stories from the world of entertainment, business, crime and international politics via podcasts, books, documentaries, television series and films.

Wright and Hope worked together at the Wall Street Journal and led the newspaper’s team that exposed the 1Malaysia Development Bhd. (1MDB) scandal, a $6 billion fraud that brought down a government and forced Goldman Sachs to pay the largest ever penalty under U.S. bribery laws.
