US-based T Group Productions has signed an overall coproduction deal with Everywhere Studios, which is owned by veteran television exec Tom Mazza and the founder of Helifilms, David Calvert-Jones.
The prodco will serve as the production entity for Everywhere’s five-picture commitment with People Magazine at Disney-owned Freeform for a slate of true story movies under the banner People Presents.
In addition, Everywhere will create, develop and produce scripted programming that will be coproduced with T Group in the US and UK.
The Everywhere team will work closely with Jenny Daly, president of T Group, and Rob Lobl, executive vice president of development and current programming.
T Group has shown interest in scripted projects as of late, with projects such as Worst. Birthday. Ever landing at CW Seed and Return of the Mac at Pop and CBS Studios. The new moves look set to build momentum in this play.
Daly, Mazza and Calvert-Jones will serve as executive producers on all series.
“Tom’s resume is truly unique – he’s led a large scale studio, managed a distribution catalog, produced for major networks and integrated brands into premium content,” said Daly.
“He’s an ideal partner for us as we continue to expand into scripted and make it a priority with these five incredible projects.”
Mazza said: “I’ve known Jenny from when we first worked together at Paramount. She is a truly gifted creator, showrunner and executive who has built an impressive team at T Group.”
Recently, T Group also acquired digital house Big Boots Studio and established its own studio, T Group Media (TGM).
