Disney+ Signs Exclusive Multi-Year Production Agreement with Supper Club

Projects From the Acclaimed Producers Join Disney+'s Extensive Slate of Nonfiction Projects

Disney+ has inked a two-year deal with David Gelb ("Chef's Table," "Jiro Dreams of Sushi"), Brian McGinn ("Chef's Table," "Amanda Knox") and Jason Sterman ("13th," "Five Came Back") of Supper Club. Under the exclusive pact, the trio will create premium franchise-based and original-concept nonfiction programming for the streaming service as well as other platforms and networks within The Walt Disney Company.

"We are thrilled Jason, David and Brian will bring their distinct perspectives and genuine narrative vision exclusively to Disney," said Agnes Chu, senior vice president, Content, Disney+. "As some of the world's greatest nonfiction storytellers, Supper Club will be a crucial, creative force for Disney+ as we build a platform for compelling, personal, and authentic programming."

"The storytelling legacy of The Walt Disney Company had a formative and lasting impact on us growing up, and we are honored to be welcomed into this exciting new chapter of such a storied studio," said Jason Sterman, partner, Supper Club. "To become a part of the Disney family is any filmmaker's dream, and David, Brian and I are looking forward to working alongside Ricky, Agnes, Dan and the entire Disney+ team to bring audiences dynamic new nonfiction stories from all of Disney's legendary brands."

Specializing in the development and production of original scripted and documentary content, Supper Club is dedicated to elevated storytelling across all platforms and formats. In the last three years, the Supper Club founders have garnered nine Emmy(R) nominations and two wins, including for Outstanding Documentary or Nonfiction Special. The company's first original series for Disney+ will be the culture-focused "Marvel's 616" (working title), created in collaboration with Marvel New Media, the digital, short-form and nonfiction content studio within Marvel Entertainment, and the wildlife conservation-themed "Earthkeepers" (working title).

"Marvel's 616" (working title) is an anthological documentary series exploring the intersection between Marvel's rich legacy of stories, characters and creators and the world outside your window. Told through the lens of a diverse group of filmmakers, each documentary will dive into the rich historical, cultural and societal context that has become inseparable from stories of the Marvel Universe. The series is produced by Marvel New Media in partnership with Supper Club. Executive Produced by Joe Quesada, Stephen Wacker, Shane Rahmani, John Cerilli, Harry Go and Sarah Amos for Marvel and David Gelb, Brian McGinn and Jason Sterman for Supper Club.

From the award-winning creators of "Chef's Table" and the producers of "One Lucky Elephant," "Earthkeepers" (working title) is a cinematic documentary series that centers on the adventurous lives of the people changing the way we see the animal kingdom. The episodes focus on conservationists and the animals they've devoted their career to studying, diving deep into the personal trials and professional breakthroughs of protecting the planet's most endangered species. The series is executive produced by Brian McGinn, Jason Sterman, and David Gelb for Supper Club and Cristina Colissimo and Jordana Glick-Franzheim for Wellworth Pictures.

The Supper Club projects are a few from the robust slate of nonfiction programming being created for the highly anticipated streaming service, set to launch in the US in late 2019. The wide range of content, from some of the best documentary and nonfiction storytellers, will allow viewers to find the ethos of Disney in everyday stories, inspiring hope and sparking the curiosity of audiences of all ages.

Additional original nonfiction series for Disney+ include:

Be Our Chef

What if your family had the chance to create the next great Disney Parks dish? Hosted by Angela Kinsey ("The Office"), "Be Our Chef" invites families from diverse backgrounds to join a positive and playful Disney-inspired cooking competition at Walt Disney World. In each episode, two families will participate in a themed challenge based on their family traditions and the magic of Disney. The finalists will apply what they have learned to create a dish that represents their family through a Disney lens. The winner's magical food creation will become a signature dish or treat served at Walt Disney World.

"Be Our Chef" is produced by INE Entertainment with Eric Day and Mark Koops serving as producers.

Cinema Relics: Iconic Art of the Movies (working title)

"Cinema Relics: Iconic Art of the Movies" is an anthology series that takes a unique look at beloved films through the props & costumes (now modern 'artifacts') that made them unique - from the craftspeople who created them, the actors who interacted with them, and the collectors / archives who own and cherish them. The show will be hosted by film historian/collector Dan Lanigan. Among the films featured in the first eight episodes are "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl," "Mary Poppins," "The Muppet Movie," "Tron," and "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?"

"Cinema Relics" is produced by ABC Studios and executive produced by Jason Henry and Dan Lanigan.

Encore!

Executive producer Kristen Bell brings together former castmates of a high school musical, tasking them with re-creating their original performance in a high school reunion like no other. Emotions run high as the former students face faded friendships, former flames, self-doubt, and killer choreography. Through it all, these unlikely groups of friends - with the help of Broadway's best - just might pull off a standing-ovation-worthy performance of beloved musicals like "The Sound of Music," "Beauty and the Beast," "Annie," and more.

"Encore!" was created by Jason Cohen, and is executive produced by Cohen, Kristen Bell, Alycia Rossiter, Will Gluck, Richard Schwartz, Jim Roush and Chris Wagner.

Marvel's Hero Project

"Marvel's Hero Project" reveals the remarkable, positive change several young heroes are making in their own communities. These inspiring kids have dedicated their lives to selfless acts of bravery and kindness, and now, Marvel celebrates them as the true Super Heroes they are.

"Marvel's Hero Project" is produced by Marvel New Media in partnership with Maggievision Productions. Executive Produced by Joe Quesada, Stephen Wacker, Shane Rahmani, Liza Wyles and Sarah Amos for Marvel and Maura Mandt and John Hirsch for MaggieVision Productions.

(Re)Connect

In "(Re)Connect," each episode features one family with a modern day, relatable issue that's driving a wedge between them. Issues range from workaholic parents, overly competitive siblings, technology addiction, or a family secret that has recently been revealed. All of these families have reached a breaking point, and it's time for them to disconnect from their busy lives, devices and outside influences in order to address their issues head-on. With the help of a specialized expert, each family will go on a unique journey that organically ties to the issues they are facing in order to confront the family's dilemma head-on. Can they finally come together as a family to overcome their obstacles ... and reconnect?

"(Re)Connect" is produced by Milojo Productions and Talos Films. Mark Consuelos, Kelly Ripa, and Albert Bianchini of Milojo Productions, and Julian P. Hobbs and Elli Hakami of Talos Films serve as executive producers.

Rogue Trip

"Rogue Trip" is a travel guide to all the places the average tourist is least likely to venture - the roguish, often misunderstood and frequently overlooked corners of the world whose hidden corners surprise, amaze and inspire. This is the family vacation most of us are unlikely to take - but we do so vicariously with the intrepid Bob Woodruff and his 27-year old doppelg´┐Żnger son, Mack.

"Rogue Trip" is executive produced by Jeanmarie Condon for Lincoln Square Productions.

Shop Class (working title)

A new competition series, "Shop Class" features teams of inventive students who are tasked with designing, building, and testing new contraptions. In each episode, a panel of experts will rate their work based on engineering, design, and the final test of the build. In the last episode, one team will be named Shop Class Champs.

John Stevens and Spike Feresten of Hangar 56 Media and Richard Rawlings of Production Monkey are producing.

Untitled Walt Disney Imagineering Documentary Series

The documentary series chronicles the 65+ year history of Walt Disney Imagineering with parallel storylines of the people, the craft, and the business. Created by Academy Award(R) and Emmy(R) nominated director and producer Leslie Iwerks, the series includes exclusive interviews and never-before-seen footage from Disney's parks around the world.

The series is produced by Iwerks & Co. and directed by Leslie Iwerks.
