EXCLUSIVE: Jane Featherstone and Liz Murdoch‘s Sister has invested in Stephen Curry‘s Unanimous Media.
The Chernobyl and This is Going to Hurt producer took an undisclosed minority stake in Unanimous Media Holdings in June, Deadline understands. Both companies declined to comment on the deal.
NBA legend Curry launched his Unanimous banner with producer Erick Peyton in 2018 and the outfit makes family, faith and sports-based content.
Recent Unanimous credits include high-end Apple TV+ doc Stephen Curry: Underrated with A24 and Proximity, an upcoming narrative film and doc about the All Star Café (with Sports Illustrated Studios and 101 Studios) and ABC competition format Holey Moley. Alongside the recent investment from Sister, the company also has a global talent partnership in place with NBCUniversal for scripted and a first-look development deal with DreamWorks Animation for kids and family content. Deadline revealed the first project to emerge from the former deal, mockumentary comedy Mr. Throwback, earlier this year.

Curry is a Golden State Warriors legend who was the first player in league history to be unanimously named MVP, hence the company name.
Featherstone and Murdoch’s Sister, meanwhile, has been keen to invest in companies and expand U.S. footprint of late. The studio has an LA hub and recently opened a New York office, which houses book publisher Zando and podcast producer Campside Media.
Alongside Courteney Cox and Snow Patrol’s Johnny McDaid, Sister’s previous minority stake was a “significant” one in Richard Bacon’s Yes Yes Media in March of this year. Other invested companies include Disney+’s Coleen Rooney: The Real Wagatha Story indie Dorothy Street.
Revenues at Featherstone and Murdoch’s outfit skyrocketed last year by $100M, Deadline revaled last week, and Sister has just welcomed former Netflix TV boss Cindy Holland into its fold as Global CEO, replacing Stacey Snider.
