Viola Davis’ JuVee Productions Looking To Raise $250 Million For Future Projects

JuVee Productions, Viola Davis and husband Julius Tennon‘s film, television, and digital production company, is looking to expand.

The production company, which launched in 2012, is embarking on a campaign to raise $250 million dollars. That money will be used to develop, produce, and distribute feature films and digital and branded VR content for a global audience.

JuVee Productions is a company that is committed to “producing narratives from a diverse range of emerging and established voices alike.” Diversity is something Tennon talked about when announcing this campaign:

“The shift in storytelling should be inclusive and we aim to make it a reality.”

The next projects from JuVee include the Viola Davis-lead movie The Personal History of Rachel DuPree; a biopic on congresswoman Barbara Jordan; and an ABC show titled The Zipcoders about a group of black teenagers in the ’60s who want to start a rock ‘n’ roll band.

Safe to say that the people behind JuVee Productions know what they’re doing.
