Projects currently in development are Teen Court, from rapper/actor Curtis Jackson (50 Cent), about a teen-help program that seeks to redeem youth offenders under Jackson's and his celebrity friend's guidance; Jailhouse Weddings, which follows a family of ex-cons-turned-ministers who wed prisoners to their outside partners; and Stan Lee's Comic Book, based on Lee's search for the next great comic book creator and character.
"Maria is a trailblazer and one of the hardest working women in our industry. Keven is a creative innovator who knows how to execute. Together, with the depth and resources of Emmett/Furla Films, we foresee great success in the area of unscripted TV. It's yet another exciting achievement for our company," said Randall Emmett, cofounder of Emmett/Furla Films.
Menounos added: "Randall Emmett is on the path to be the next Bruckheimer and Keven and I can't wait to share our resources with him and Emmett/Furla to create the most diverse, fun and groundbreaking roster of shows."
Tim Sullivan, who was recently promoted to development executive at Emmett/Furla Films, will serve as liaison to both parties.
Menounos' Underman/OmegaGirl Inc. recently sold their untitled reality show to the Oxygen Network.
