Wendy Williams And Suzanne de Passe Partner Up To Develop Original TV And Film Projects

Wendy Williams And Suzanne de Passe Partner Up To Develop Original TV And Film Projects

Production companies belonging to Wendy Williams and Suzanne de Passe (Wendy Williams Productions and de Passe Jones Entertainment) have teamed up to develop projects for TV and film.

The plan is to jointly develop and distribute original projects for both the big and small screens (movies and series) which will be targeted to a diverse audience under the “Wendy Williams Presents” banner.

The goal of this strategic partnership is to bring the very best movies of every ilk to the general public and greatly enhance the diversity, content and quality of offerings currently available,” said de Passe Jones co-chairman Madison Jones.

And further, from Suzanne de Passe: “We are looking forward to expanding her brand and audience in all areas of filmed and scripted entertainment.”

The “her” she’s referring to in that quote of course is Wendy Williams.

Keep in mind that, as we announced last fall, Suzanne de Passe has a 3-year “first-look” deal with Universal Pictures via her de Passe Jones production company.

Never really been much of a Wendy Williams fan (I’m really not her target demo anyway), but I’m certainly curious to see what this new partnership produces.

Reserving judgement. I will say that Wendy looks nice in this picture. How many faces ago was this?


Not very optimistic on this one. Had a friend who worked Dev for DePasse for years and they never did anything. They always had something "announced" and then nothing happened. Classic Hollywood-Get money to "develop" and then everybody gets a summer home in Boca Raton.


I'm not a big fan of WW, but I do sometimes watch her show because she does have on Black folks that we usually do not see much of AND she does seem to ask the question "Are there any Black people in it?" when she's talking to other folks about movies, shows and events. I've never seen anyone ask that question before, even though I always think it! If we can get her to expand to include some indie movie people as her guests, that would be great (though probably unlikely.)
