Ava DuVernay To Get A Sum Of N36,450,000,000 From Warner Bros TV
The American film director, producer, screenwriter, film marketer, and film distributor is definitely cashing out in Hollywood. According to Deadline, she has signed a contract with Warner Bros. Televisions which will see her develop new projects for the studio.
On the deal, Ava said:
I’ve had nothing but beautiful experiences working with Peter Roth, Susan Rovner and Brett Paul. They love and support artists in wonderful and nourishing ways. They work within a traditional studio headed by Kevin Tsujihara that is stirring with untraditional energy and fresh protocols for intentional, inclusive image-making. Warner Bros is a terrific partner about matters of visibility and belonging for all kinds and cultures of people, which is our mission at Forward Movement. I couldn’t be happier to call Warner Bros TV my production home.
Ava DuVernay will begin work with Warner Bros TV in January 2019. The contract is reportedly said to be within the N36,450,000,000 range.
WBTV Chief Content Officer, Peter Roth, said:
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.
