“I’m so thrilled to be working with the amazing team at Matador,” Heslov said. “And to continue this journey with these female warriors who took an oath to give their lives for our country is an honor.”

Matador Content is also the production company behind Spike’s “Lip Sync Battle,” ABC’s “Boy Band,” and HBO’s “Banksy Does New York.” Finerman served as a producer on “Forest Gump,” “The Devil Wears Prada,” and “P.S. I Love You.” She founded her production company Wendy Finerman Productions in 1988.

Heslov is also currently attached to the film adaption of young adult novel “This Is Where It Ends” as the director. She is represented by CAA.
