The new company is described as “combining the attributes of a traditional film studio with that of a production company,” and having the “ability to greenlight and maintain project autonomy through every phase of acquisition, development, financing, production, licensing and distribution.”

It will be led by an all-women team, with a focus on developing projects featuring characters who represent a diversity of people, places, cultures and concepts. Sneed is founder and CEO of the new entity.

With nearly two decades of experience in television and film production, Sneed was the first woman to serve as president of Tyler Perry Studios. During her tenure with the company, she oversaw production of all its TV, film and new media projects.

She was an executive producer on hundreds of episodes of television including BET and BET+ shows such as Sistas, The Oval, Ruthless, Bruh and All The Queen’s Men, as well as Nickelodeon series Young Dylan and Netflix movies A Fall From Grace and A Madea Homecoming. Before joining Tyler Perry Studios, Sneed was the director of physical production at BET Networks.

“We’re building the space that we’ve always wanted to be a part of, where the most authentic, innovative, and diverse talents – both in front of and behind the camera – can shine and we, as a highly experienced all-women executive team can level the playing field by provisioning the deserved compensation, equity and credit currency for those who look like us and beyond,” said Sneed.

“The power to greenlight and underwrite diverse projects through a premium lens with high integrity deal-making starts at the top and is mission-critical to the future and standing of multicultural executives, creatives, producers and storytellers.”
