Stephen Curry has partnered with Sony Pictures Entertainment for his newly formed production company Unanimous Media.
The shingle is named for Curry's unanimous Most Valuable Player award in 2016.
The first-look film and TV deal also will extend to opportunities in partnerships, electronics, gaming and virtual reality. Curry’s production headquarters will be located on the Sony Pictures studio lot in Culver City.
“I’ve been blessed to have this platform and I want to use it to affect the world positively,” Curry said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter. “Partnering with Sony to share inspiring content with a global audience was a foregone conclusion."
The production company will focus on faith and family-friendly content as well as sports-themed projects.
Curry founded Unanimous Media with Jeron Smith and Erick Peyton, who serve as CEO and CCO, respectively.
“Steph is a transcendent figure in current culture. His wide-ranging content creation interests overlap well with our varied businesses and we have been equally impressed with his team,” Tom Rothman, chairman of Sony Pictures Motion Picture Group, said in a statement. “We are honored to have been drafted and now we know how lucky Golden State feels every day.”
