Hello Sunshine

Reese
Witherspoon

Witherspoon made headlines in August 2021 not for her acting, but her business savvy, when her production company Hello Sunshine sold for $900 million to a media company backed by Blackstone Group, rolling her share into an equity stake in the newly formed venture run by former Disney execs Kevin Mayer and Tom Staggs. Witherspoon and CEO Sarah Harden will continue to pilot Hello Sunshine, which has produced such films as “Gone Girl” and “Wild,” along with her shows “Big Little Lies” (HBO) and “The Morning Show” (Apple TV+). It’s also responsible for Reese’s Book Club and a series of female-centric podcasts including “My Best Break-Up.” Hello Sunshine’s  upcoming slate includes the Netflix romcom “Your Place or Mine,” which the Oscar-winning actor will star in opposite Ashton Kutcher.
