Will Packer Starts Up New Production Company


The untouchable movie producer, Will Packer is branching out from the movie industry to TV media production. Packer has recently started up his very own production company called Will Packer Media. His new company is backed by Discovery Communications and Universal Pictures.

 "This gives me the ability to tell a story the way that story should be told. I don’t have to look at it as one particular type of content for one particular medium,” said Packer.


According to eurweb.com, Will Packer Media is a production and branded content company focused on TV and digital scripted and unscripted series, branded content as well as short-form entertainment targeting millennial audiences. Packer will serve as CEO and will have offices in Los Angeles, New York City and Atlanta.

Packer is known for producing low-budget projects resulting in high profits. His most recent production Girls Trip surpassed expectations by killing the box office opening weekend, taking in $30 million. Packer added that he wanted to target the “new American mainstream” with his projects, describing his audience as young city millennials who are passionate about the entertainment that they consume.


Can we please give Will Packer a handclap? This 43-year-old notable film producer has racked up millions producing movies such as Think Like a Man, Obsessed, Ride Along, and About Last Night. He is especially LIT because he is a graduate from The #1 HBCU in the land, FAMU! Are you here for this #BlackManMagic?
