Entertainment One (eOne) has entered into a two-year, first-look deal for scripted and unscripted TV programming with the investigative documentary filmmaking duo Amy Ziering and Kirby Dick’s Chain Camera.
eOne will serve as the studio on all of the projects coming out of the partnership and will handle worldwide rights.
Ziering and Dick are two-time Emmy Award-winning and two-time Academy Award-nominated documentary filmmakers. Their most recent film, The Bleeding Edge, is a critically acclaimed Netflix original investigative feature.
Peter Micelli, eOne’s chief strategy officer for film and television, said: “Amy and Kirby are without a doubt two of the most important and well-respected filmmakers working in documentary film today. Together they have made films that have single-handedly defined and transformed our culture and have an unmatched record of crafting thrilling and original investigative features that are, in their own right, cinematic tours de force.
“We are thrilled that they will bring their bold talents to eOne and we look forward to providing them a platform where they can bring their authentic storytelling to create scripted and non-scripted programming that can impact and inform people around the world.”
“Kirby and I are beyond excited to partner with entertainment powerhouse eOne,” said Ziering. “We look forward to working with eOne’s first tier team of executives, creators and visionaries. We can’t wait to see what we all are able to conjure together.”
