Second City Sets Development Pact with Thruline/Tagline

Second City has set a deal with Thruline Entertainment/Tagline Pictures to develop original content with the Chicago-based theater company.

Deal calls for Thruline/Tagline to work with Second City execs on projects derived from the org’s many productions and its educational arm that offers improv and acting classes through its facilities in Chicago, Los Angeles and Toronto.

Deal also gives Second City performers an opportunity to work with managers from the Thruline side of the Beverly Hills-based management-production banner.

“In addition to creating new projects with Tagline, this partnership allows us to offer developing talent our experience, as well as Thruline’s management expertise and resources,” said Andrew Alexander, CEO and exec producer of Second City.

Thruline — run by partners Chris Henze, JB Roberts, Ron West and Willie Mercer — emphasized in a statement that they hope to mine “a deep reservoir of ideas and creators around which to build future development slates.”

Thruline/Tagline’s past productions include the USA Network dramedy “Psych” and ABC comedy “Man Up.”
