One can only imagine the stories DuVernay will get the chance to tell. Ava DuVernay told Deadline Today that she “couldn’t be happier to call Warner Brothers TV my production home”.
Ava DuVernay’s contract is set to go in an effect this January. In addition to being able to create practically anything, DuVernay’s contract also allows her to sell her projects to any network she pleases.
Ava DuVernay is currently working on DC Comic’s New Gods and has just wrapped shooting for her Netflix miniseries, Central Park Five.
