John Legend continues to expand the reach of his Get Lifted Film Company, moving into unscripted programming this time (reality TV), inking a multi-year production deal with studio Critical Content, to develop unscripted content for television and digital media.
Critical Content rose from the ashes of the Relativity Media’s bankruptcy last year, and was formerly Relativity’s television division.
“John, Mike and Ty are a creative trifecta and we are thrilled to collaborate with them to tell the most moving, important, and entertaining stories on television,” stated Critical Content’s CEO, Tom Forman. “Get Lifted has a track record for developing compelling content across multiple genres. From music competitions to meaningful documentaries, they do it all.”
Legend’s Get Lifted credits include the hist WGN America series “Underground,” last year’s young Obamas romance “Southside with You,” and Damien Chazelle’s acclaimed musical feature “La La Land” to name a few.
No word at this time on any unscripted projects that Get Lifted and Critical Content are currently developing under their new deal.
