Since its inception in April 2015, the partnership has produced Streets of Compton, which was nominated for an Image Award and IDA Award and the recently announced, L.A. Burning: The Riots 25 Years Later (pictured), among other projects.

“Our collaboration with Creature Films has brought to life an impressive slate of outstanding projects across a number of top networks,” said Tara Long, EVP, alternative programming, eOne Television, in a statement. “We are proud of the continued success of this partnership and look forward to working with Mark, Kevin and their innovative team for years to come.”

Creature Films and eOne are currently working together on future unannounced projects, which have been picked up straight-to-series by cable networks.

They are also in production on The Notorious Life of Biggie Smalls, the premiere feature in the reboot of A&E’s Biography franchise, which Is being directed by Ford. Other projects include The Ride for MTV International and two separate documentary projects about the LA Riots: LA Burning, a collaboration with executive producer John Singleton, for A&E, and LA Riots: 25 Years Later for History Channel.
