The Washington Post and Imagine Entertainment have entered into a strategic partnership to create scripted and non-scripted film and television properties derived from The Post’s archives, current reporting, and ongoing investigations.

Under the terms of the multi-year deal, Imagine will have an exclusive first-look to develop and produce all projects through the venture. Creative Artists Agency (CAA), which represents both entities, brokered the deal and will harness its resources and expertise to help expand The Post’s storytelling opportunities with Imagine across multiple formats. Washington Post Publisher and CEO Fred Ryan will oversee the deal with Imagine Entertainment Executive Chairman Brian Grazer and Chief Strategy Officer Justin Wilkes.

“At The Post, we’re storytellers at heart. Whether it’s holding the powerful to account or shedding light on an exceptionally compelling narrative, we see tremendous untapped potential for extending the reach of our journalism,” said Ryan. “Partnering with Imagine, a leader in the entertainment industry, and the talented team at CAA, we look forward to connecting global audiences with essential and riveting Post reporting.”
