Anonymous Content Sells Stake to Emerson Collective


LOS ANGELES/PALO ALTO: Anonymous Content, which is behind such movies and series as Spotlight and Mr. Robot, has received a minority investment from Emerson Collective, the organization founded and run by Laurene Powell Jobs.

While the terms of the investment will not be disclosed, the move by Emerson Collective helps to position Anonymous Content for growth across all its related businesses, including film, TV, commercial and digital content production, as well as talent management.

The company’s TV slate includes Mr. Robot, True Detective, The Knick and Schitt’s Creek, along with upcoming titles Quarry (Cinemax), The Alienist (TNT) and Berlin Station (EPIX).
