On the heels of Kerry Washington signing a two-year development deal with ABC, Viola Davis and her husband’s production company JuVee Productions has also signed a two-year deal with the network.
According to Variety, JuVee, which Davis founded with her husband Julius Tennon, will develop projects for broadcast, cable, streaming services, and digital platforms. Davis said she started JuVee because she wanted to see more diversity onscreen, and the deal will give Davis the opportunity to do just that.
“We started JuVee because we wanted to see narratives that reflected our multi-ethnic and multifaceted culture,” Davis commented. “We wanted to be a part of classic storytelling, and we didn’t want to wait.”
It’ll be interesting to see what JuVee brings to ABC’s already diverse lineup!
