eOne Extends Deal with Creature Films for Unscripted TV


Entertainment One (eOne) has extended its deal with Mark Ford’s Creature Films for unscripted television through 2024.

The partnership began as a first-look deal in 2015 and has produced such series as MTV’s Siesta Key, Behind the Music for Paramount+ and the upcoming documentary about Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett, The Lady and the Legend. Further, Creature Films recently appointed Pat Lambert as its head of development.

Lambert joins Creature Films from 44 Blue Productions, where he was VP of development. He began his career as a talent booker on daytime/talk series at NBC, ABC, FOX and E!

Tara Long, president of global unscripted television for eOne, said: “Our partnership with Mark and the team at Creature Films has created some of eOne’s most long-running and landmark unscripted programming. We are thrilled to continue this relationship and even more excited to have Pat joining their team.”

Ford, president of Creature Films, added: “Tara Long and the entire team at eOne have been incredibly supportive partners for the past six years—like a family, really. We’ve grown and accomplished so much together, and I am very optimistic about the years ahead, especially with the impressive Pat Lambert helming our rapidly expanding development slate.”
