Danai Gurira is partnering with ABC to create ground breaking and entertaining content. Learn more after the leap… The actress starred in ‘Black Panther’ and ‘The Walking Dead’ and is also the genius behind the stage play ‘Eclipsed’.
Now, she is to share her magic with ABC Studios via a deal designed to entertain and enlighten the masses.
The two-year deal will see her create projects under the Disney banner but gives her the freedom to sell what she makes to other companies.
ABC’s President had this to say about the deal:
From Zimbabwe to Wakanda to Broadway. The scope of her talents and the breadth of her abilities are simply astonishing. We are over the moon that she has chosen to make ABC Studios her exclusive home.
I am thrilled to work with Jonnie and his stellar team at ABC Studios.Their commitment to the feminine perspective aligns with my goals as a storyteller. I am excited to amplify unheard voices and bring to light narratives that will tackle universal themes while they simultaneously break barriers and bring new faces, voices and influences to the screen.
