Grammy-winner and Oscar-nominee Blige is moving into the world of TV production, as she has signed a first-look TV deal with Lionsgate to develop and produce series by way of her freshly-launched Blue Butterfly Productions. With the deal, Blige can also create content for the studios’ variety of platforms.
“I couldn’t be more excited to be working with Lionsgate,” Blige stated. “They are incredible collaborators and have been natural partners from when we first started talking. I can’t wait to bring all of our projects to life.”
Kevin Beggs, Lionsgate Television Group chairman adds, "Mary is a very talented artist, fearless visionary and an incredible human being. We’re delighted to be working with someone with such a powerful and impactful creative voice. Every art she touches blossoms, and we're humbled she’s chosen us as her home. We look forward to all the exciting new content Mary and her Blue Butterfly banner will bring to our television slate and Lionsgate 360 orbit."
We can all currently catch the multifaceted starlet on Netflix’s The Umbrella Academy and the third season of VH1’s Scream.
