Content Media Corporation and Preferred Content have launched a film, television and digital production and development joint venture, kicking off with supernatural thriller Mr. Jones.

Preferred Content founders Ross M Dinerstein and Kevin Iwashina will oversee day-to-day operations at the new entity Preferred Film & TV (PFT) and will work closely with Jamie Carmichael. 

PFT will produce across a range of genres and has established a first-look deal with Content Media Corporation. Both Content Media and Preferred Content will continue to manage their international and domestic sales businesses separately.

Karl Mueller wrote and directed Mr. Jones based on an idea by Dinerstein and Mueller. Jon Foster and Sarah Jones star and the project is in post. Content is showing footage at AFM.

Content and Preferred Content established a relationship last year with Xavier Gens’ The Divide, followed by The Day and The Pact.
