Under the multiyear deal, Will.I.Am will serve as an executive producer on TV and film projects, leveraging his industry and creative expertise to develop and produce original programming with eOne, for which the studio will control worldwide rights. Sara Ramaker, COO of Will.I.Am’s I.Am.Media will also serve as his producing partner.

“Will.I.Am has an extensive track record of creating entertainment content that moves masses and shapes cultural moments,” said Peter Micelli, eOne’s chief strategy officer of film, television and digital. “We have long admired his body of work and can’t wait to collaborate on exceptional content together.”

“It’s a dream come true to be collaborating with eOne, to be surrounded by great partners who can help take ideas from my brain, from books and onward to explode and entertain on multiple screens,” commented Will.I.Am.  “It’s also a true honor to have the opportunity to work with Mark Gordon, one of the most prolific and respected producers in Hollywood and beyond.”
