“Antoine Fuqua has produced and directed some of the most gripping film and television projects of our time and has a singular creative voice,” said Chairman & Co-CEO Silverman. “He is the rare multi-genre hyphenate with deep production experience across fiction and non-fiction. We are thrilled to collaborate with him in delivering powerful new episodic properties and to help support his efforts to turn Fuqua Films into a global-inclusive production powerhouse. “
Fuqua most recently directed and executive produced the critically acclaimed documentary, What’s My Name: Muhammad Ali, for HBO. Fuqua Films is also producing the drama series #FreeRayShawn, starring Laurence Fishburne and Stephan James, for short-form streaming platform Quibi.
