LA-based MarVista Entertainment has signed a multi-picture deal with New York’s MiMO Studios to co-produce at least five live-action kids movies.
As part of the agreement, MarVista will represent the new MiMO titles and seek acquisition, financing, production and distribution partners for them. MiMO will also develop and co-produce content based on MarVista’s existing IP library.
MarVista previously worked with MiMO CEO Cyma Zarghami when she was president of Nickelodeon on projects like holiday movie Tiny Christmas and comedy film Nicky Deuce.
Zarghami launched MiMO Studios in 2020, and has since lined up a live-action film called The Kid Who Only Hit Homers, as well as partnering with former NBA point guard Baron Davis to create sports content for families.
