Elizabeth Banks Signs Overall Deal with Warner Bros. TV

Elizabeth Banks and producing partner Max Handelman have signed an exclusive overall producing deal with Warner Bros. Television.

Brownstone Productions will develop and produce new television series for the studio under a multiyear pact.

The deal comes following Banks’ directorial debut on the Universal smash hit “Pitch Perfect 2,” which has grossed $171 million domestically. A third pic is in development with Banks and Handleman returning as producers.

Brownstone had been more active on the film front but had slowly been building up a TV slate; they are currently producing “Resident Advisors,” a comedy series with Paramount Digital for Hulu. This deal should see Brownstone generate even more material for the smallscreen.

The pair recently signed a film production deal at Universal, where they are developing several projects including “Pitch Perfect 3” and “Red Queen,” based on the YA novel, which could also be a directing vehicle for Banks. Brownstone’s upcoming film slate includes two projects in development at Lionsgate — “White Girl Problems” and “Heist Society” — in addition to “Dirty Rush” at TriStar.

Banks is represented by Untitled Entertainment, UTA and Ziffren Brittenham.
