Virgin scripts TV deal with eOne

Shingle to have exclusive rights to all Virgin Produced scripted TV content

Virgin Produced, the production arm of the Richard Branson’s Virgin Group, has inked a first-look deal with “Haven” and “Hung” shingle eOne under which eOne will have exclusive rights to all Virgin Produced scripted TV content.

Virgin Produced, formed in 2010, is new to the television world — with Relativity, the company co-produced Rogue’s Bradley Cooper-Robert De Niro starrer “Limitless,” released in March, but it hasn’t yet seen a smallscreen venture come to fruition.

The shingle has another extant first-look deal for all unscripted content with NBCUniversal’s E! and is headed by CEO Jason Felts and chief creative officer Justin Berfield.

“Virgin Produced’s exciting new relationship with eOne marks the ambitious beginning into the scripted television business, similar to what has been achieved in film,” Branson said. “Jason and Justin are smart to continue to forge studio alignments with like-minded partners who understand the brand and also to continue fostering an environment that embraces terrific talent.”
