Mary J. Blige takes her career to new heights as she recently signed a first look tv deal with Lionsgate. The Oscar nominee will develop and produce projects under her newly-formed Blue Rainbow production company. I couldn’t be more excited to be working with Lionsgate. 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,” said Blige.
MJB has been showing off her action chops lately as she starred in the Oscar-nominated film Mudbound, along starring in Netflix’s The Umbrella Academy and she’ll appear next in the long-delayed season 3 of VH1’s Scream. Mary will also appear in the upcoming films Violent Heart and Body Cam.
“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,” said Lionsgate TV Group chairman Kevin Beggs.
