Ava DuVernay Ends Overall Deal With Warner Television

Loading the player…

The deal between Ava DuVernay and Warner Television has come to an end. 

After signing a five-year deal in 2018, it will reportedly come to an end on May 31, and she will continue to work on her film projects. Reports also made it clear that this split between the award-winning director and Warner Television has nothing to do with the continuing writer’s strike between the Writers Guild of America and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers. 

We reported that DuVernay has landed this deal when Peter Roth was still the head of Warner. At the time, Roth spoke about their new partnership, “Ava DuVernay is one of the leading lights in our industry, a brilliantly talented writer, producer, director, and entrepreneur whose ability to entertain.” 

While being a part of this deal, she released a number of shows and films, including “Queen Sugar”, “For Justice”, “When They See Us”, and “Colin in Black & White.” DuVernay is currently working on another TV project starring Joshua Jackson and Lauren Ridloff. 

At the moment, there is no word on where the “Selma” director will be moving her television deal too. What are your thoughts on Ava DuVernay’s ending this deal?
