Academy Awards producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron are signing on to work with the Shubert Organization.
According to the New York Times, the producers have inked a three- year development and production deal with the Shubert Organization, a theatrical producing organization and owner of major theaters in Manhattan, New York.
Look no further than their company website for Storyline Entertainment to see how much the duo has accomplished. They "have earned a total of six Academy Awards, five Golden Globes, 13 Emmy Awards, two Peabody Awards, a Grammy Award, five GLAAD Awards, two NAACP Image Awards, and two Tony Awards with their various feature films, television and theater projects."
The two have made many Broadway productions come to life on screen as films including Annie, Hairspray and Chicago.
Meron told Deadline about the partnership, "We've always wanted a berth in the theater, and we've been looking for a partnership that made sense... To be with people who got us, understood what we do and our ability to put together exciting projects with exciting people.”
