Issa Rae signs Eight-Figure deal with WarnerMedia
Los Angeles- Issa Rae has signed an Eight-Figure television and film deal with WarnerMedia.
On Wednesday, WarnerMedia announced that they resigned with Rae and was excited what she will bring to the table in the near future. The deal will give exclusive rights to HBO, HBO Max and Warner Bros for future films, as well as Rae work in TV.
“It’s really exciting to have that flexibility and just deepen the relationship that we already have,” Rae told Variety. “Hoorae already had at least 15 projects in various stages of development with them, so we’d been working with them on the drama side, the unscripted side, and the documentaries side for a couple years now.”
WarnerMedia wanted to renew Rae's contract with the company, because they saw the talent and value of Rae. HBO and HBO Max Chief Content Officer Casey Bloys explained why it was a priority for the brand to continue to be in the Issa Rae business.
“She’s obviously very talented and she’s very prolific,” he says. “It’s been very good to work with Issa personally, but also as a company, because she’s seeded a lot of talent elsewhere.”
