Animation/family entertainment management and production company The Gotham Group is teaming with videogame talent management and production company Union Ent. to produce videogames, animated series and feature films.
"The clear overlap between Union's impressive work in the videogame world and Gotham's expertise in the animation, film and television worlds, has led our companies to collaborate to mutual advantage on various projects in the past," said Gotham Group ceo/founder Ellen Goldsmith-Vein. "This alliance will further that success."
Union Ent. president Richard Leibowitz added, "The Gotham/Union alliance is our answer to the Gotham clients who see video games as a natural extension of their talents, as well as to the game creators we work with whose properties should be exploited in film and television. We see this arrangement as a way not just to do deals, but to build franchises."
Union titles have garnered more than a half-billion dollars in retail sales.
