OSCAR NOMINATED DIRECTOR AVA DUVERNAY INKS MASSIVE DEAL WITH WARNER BROTHERS (357 hits)

Ava DuVernay is putting down roots. 
The Emmy-winning and Oscar-nominated writer, producer and director has signed what sources say is a massive multiyear overall deal with Warner Bros. Television. Under the pact, DuVernay will develop new projects for the studio, including drama, comedy, longform and event series, documentaries, digital content and more for platforms including broadcast, basic and premium cable, as well as streaming and on-demand platforms. 
The pact extends DuVernay's relationship with Warner Bros. TV, for whom she executive produces OWN's Queen Sugar and CBS' midseason drama The Red Line. Sources estimate the deal to be worth in the high eight-figure range. “Ava DuVernay is one of the leading lights in our industry, a brilliantly talented writer, producer, director and entrepreneur whose ability to inspire with her art is exceeded only by her ability to entertain. We have had the great pleasure of working with her on Queen Sugar and The Red Line, and we are extremely excited about the new stories she has to tell,” WBTV chief content officer Peter Roth said Tuesday in a release announcing the news.
