Oscar winner Emma Stone and Emmy-nominated writer/director Dave McCary have launched Fruit Tree, a new film/TV production banner that launches with a two-year first look TV deal at A24.
The partners intend to produce projects across scripted, documentary, and unscripted formats. The first new project under the A24 deal will be a TV adaption of The Shadows, a debut thriller novel from Stacy Willingham.
“We are thrilled to partner with our friends at A24,” Stone and McCary said in a statement. “Their commitment to thoughtful and original storytelling and embracing artists’ visions feels rare and vital, and we are incredibly grateful that they support our passion to do the same. »
Fruit Tree’s first feature film has also landed at A24: When You Finish Saving the World, the directorial debut of Stone’s Zombieland co-star Jesse Eisenberg, who wrote the script. Stone and McCary are producing that film under their new banner.
“We are ecstatic to be taking this step with Emma and Dave as they launch Fruit Tree, and look forward to working with them on creating singular and exciting work through our new partnership,” said A24.
