After being named one of Hollywood’s Most Powerful People in Entertainment, Ava DuVernay has just made another major power play. The Emmy-award winning filmmaker has just secured a mult-year deal with Warner Bros. (WBTV) to the tune of $100 million.
The new deal includes the production and development of dramas, comedies, documentaries, digital content, event projects, and longer-form projects across multiple platforms. That means we’ll be seeing more projects like A Wrinkle In Time, 13th, Selma and Queen Sugar on cable, premium cable, streaming platforms and more.
Ava shared her new deal on Instagram:
“Warner Bros is a terrific partner on matters of visibility + belonging for all kinds + cultures of people, which is our mission at Forward Movement. Couldn’t be happier to call Warner Bros TV my production home.” Thanks for the love and light, folks. Really appreciated. xo, A
