Brian Grazer and Ron Howard’s Imagine Kids+Family and Imagine Documentaries have formed a multi-format partnership with the Rebel Girls brand, best known for its book series Good Night Stories and podcast of the same name, to create original and historical content, feature films and short- and long-form scripted and unscripted TV.
Imagine Kids+Family president Stephanie Sperber and Imagine Documentaries EVP Sara Bernstein will work with Rebel Girls CEO Jes Wolfe and Rebel Girls president of entertainment Martha Adams.
The stories that celebrate the more than 300 women featured in the Good Night Stories in the Rebel Girls universe will serve as inspiration for the content, focusing on Rebel Girls’ key themes of creators, innovators, leaders and champions.
“We are excited to partner with Rebel Girls to create documentary series and films that will inspire the next generation of game changers and world shakers,” Bernstein said in a statement. “To expand the reach of the stories of these iconic women into the world of non-fiction programming is a dream mission, as there’s no better example of a literary property that’s already ignited the spark of possibility in millions of young people globally.”
Imagine Kids+Family was launched in January 2019 by Grazer and Howard, chairmen of Imagine Entertainment, and is run by Sperber.
Imagine Entertainment launched its documentary division in June 2018 with Justin Wilkes at the helm.
Imagine Documentaries’ recent projects include the Apple TV+ event docuseries about the careers of iconic models Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Linda Evangelista and Christy Turlington, directed by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Barbara Kopple (Harlan County, USA, American Dream); and the upcoming Disney+ original docuseries On Pointe.
