New York-based media and publishing company Condé Nast is launching new TV and film studios for its major brands. According to Variety, Condé Nast Entertainment (CNE), the company’s award-winning production and distribution studio, already has plans for studios dedicated to five of its magazines: GQ, Vogue, Vanity Fair, The New Yorker, and Wired.
Each respective outlet will have its own studio head who will work in collaboration with the editorial teams. Condé Nast Entertainment president Oren Katzeff is working with the editors-in-chief of each publication to appoint studio heads. These heads will then partner with the existing CNE TV and film team in Los Angeles, including SVP of motion pictures Geneva Wasserman and SVP of scripted programming Jon Koa, to develop projects for TV, film, and podcasts.
While working on the new studios, Condé Nast Entertainment is also prepping upcoming TV and film projects. The company is currently focusing on the theatrical release of City of a Million Soldiers, which is based on a New Yorker piece; The Chairmen, a film that tells the true story of rival antique dealers in Paris; and a picture based on a Wired article that is being developed with Sam Esmail’s Esmail Corp.
Variety points out that Condé Nast Entertainment has more than 65 active projects in TV and film, in addition to roughly 175 digital pilots and two OTT channels for Bon Appétit and Wired. To learn more about the projects, as well as the new TV and film studios in general, follow here.
