Viola Davis’s production company JuVee Productions has made a deal with ABC Studios and ABC Signature Studios, Variety reports. JuVee, which Davis founded with her husband Julius Tennon, will develop projects for broadcast, cable, streaming services, and digital platforms. The company has also hired Bravo’s Andrew Wang as the company’s head of television development and production. Davis started JuVee because she wanted to see more diversity onscreen, and the deal will give Davis, who has already been an outspoken badass on the topic, the opportunity to keep making strides in that direction. Look forward to a lot of meaty roles for women and people of color. It’s Viola Davis’s world, we’re just living in it.
