Legendary Television & Digital has signed Ben Stiller and Stuart Cornfeld’s Red Hour Films to a multi-year deal. This deal marks the fist major producing deal for Legendary Television.
Legendary TV & Digital president Bruce Rosenblum spoke about the partnership and how this would bring more content to a wider audience. “All of us at Legendary are thrilled to be working with Ben, Stuart and their Red Hour team. Their comedic programming is broadly appealing, yet fulfills the edginess and irreverence that is so on brand for Legendary.”
Red Hour Films television development department will continue to be run by president Debbie Liebling, while Mike Rosenstein will oversee digital. Red Hour’s digital deal will kick in when the company’s current pact with Paramount expires, reported Deadline.
Red Hour Films most recently had a TV deal at ABC Studios for the past two years, added The Hollywood Reporter. The production company produced, created and sold a variety of projects while under that banner.
Red Hour received series pickups for Birthday Boys at IFC and The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail at Comedy Central.
