ABC Signature, a division of Disney Television Studios, and ABC Entertainment have struck a first look deal with Tyra Banks and her Bankable Productions.
The deal will see Banks — the newly-signed host and EP of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars – and her production outfit produce unscripted content for ABC Entertainment and scripted content for ABC Signature.
Comprised of an all-female team, Bankable Productions has cultivated a development slate of original ideas and existing IP in both scripted comedy and drama as well as unscripted content.
Working alongside Banks is Hayley Lozitsky, EVP of Bankable Productions, and Sabrina Besla, director of development/in-house writer.
“Karey Burke, Robert Mills, Jonnie Davis and their teams are visionary leaders. My Bankable team and I are pumped to create dynamic, can’t-miss programming that is loud, splashy and spans to international shores. From dramas and docu-series to comedies and cartoons, we’re coming to your screens with a mission to entertain you and your families in the most unexpected ways,” Banks said in a statement.
