Pursuit Productions recently closed a deal with Mark Monroe to pen the company's first documentary feature.

Lauren Sanchez is getting into the production business.

The Emmy winner has teamed with Dan Friedkin to form Pursuit Productions, which will focus on telling compelling real-life stories in what the company says is an "extraordinary" way and from all walks of life.

Sanchez, who guest hosted The View on Wednesday morning, is working with Friedkin and Imperative Entertainment on shooting the pilot for On the Road, which chronicles the death-defying adventures of The Horsemen, the world's only vintage P-51 aerobatic flight team.

Meanwhile, Pursuit recently closed a deal with Mark Monroe (The Tillman Story, The Cove) to pen the company's first documentary feature, Found. The pic is a look at the search for pilots whose planes were lost in the Battle of Peleliu during World War II.

Pursuit is repped by WME.
