Viola Davis, star of ABC’s How To Get Away With Murder, has signed an overall development deal with ABC Studios.
Under the overall deal, Davis will develop new projects for broadcast, cable, digital platforms, and streaming services through her production company, JuVee Productions – which was founded by her and her husband Julius Tennon.
JuVee has brought on Andrew Wang as head of television development and production. Wang comes from Bravo, where he was VP of scripted television development and production.
“We started JuVee because we wanted to see narratives that reflected our multi-ethnic and multifaceted culture,” Davis said. “We wanted to be a part of classic storytelling, and we didn’t want to wait.”
JuVee Productions currently has a legal drama titled Conviction on the slate with TNT, written by Ayanna Floyd (Empire) with Debra Martin Chase as executive producer.
