Imagine’s TV expansion comes on the heels of the company recently entering into a TV co-financing venture with Hong Kong based TVB Ventures, with TVB Ventures committed to investing $100 million to develop and produce Imagine Television projects. Imagine TV also recently inked a four-year co-financing, first-look agreement with CBS Corp. for scripted and unscripted television and long-form digital programming.
“As a long-time fan of Imagine series and films I jumped at the chance to work with Ron and Brian, Francie and the team,” said Falvey. “Imagine has an unparalleled track record of making excellent content that resonates with both critics and audiences. This is an incredibly exciting time for the company as they continue to grow and expand and I’m honored to be a part of it.”
In building a talent roster, Imagine TV just signed a premium script deal with Marc Cherry for his next TV series, and also inked a two-year first-look deal with Oscar-winning Beautiful Mind writer Akiva Goldsman. Earlier this year, Imagine received 16 Emmy nominations for its programs Empire, Genius and The Beatles: Eight Days A Week – The Touring Years on Hulu.
