The three-year pact with the Disney-owned studio will see the banner — headed by Jessica Elbaum and Will Ferrell, and boasting credits including Booksmart and Hustlers — develop feature-length films for consideration on both theatrical and streaming platforms.
Originally launched by Elbaum, Gloria Sanchez already has a first-look television deal with Netflix, which released its Emmy-nominated series Dead to Me and the film Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga, which starred Ferrell and Rachel McAdams and received an Oscar nomination for best original song.
“We’re beyond excited to have found a home in 20th Century Studios and to be working with an incredible team who fundamentally believes in what we’re doing at Gloria Sanchez,” said Elbaum and Ferrell. “They share our creative vision, and we can’t wait to work together to bring fresh stories to screens big and small. We’re already planning a six-month company retreat in the Cayman Islands. Why the Cayman Islands? Don’t worry about it!”
Most recently, the banner released Kristen Wiig-Annie Mumolo comedy Barb and Star Go to the Vista Del Mar via Lionsgate and will next release Apple TV+’s limited series The Shrink Next Door directed by Michael Showalter and starring Ferrell, Paul Rudd and Kathryn Hahn. The banner’s slate also includes Todd Haynes’ May December starring Natalie Portman and Julianne Moore and an untitled feature for Disney centering on Cinderella’s evil stepsisters, also from Wiig and Mumolo.
Gloria Sanchez is represented by UTA, Mosaic and Jackoway Austen.
