"Bill and Shanan have exhibited the financial discipline necessary to guide the company to its second year of profitability in its short history.  This extension shows our confidence in what they have built and their ability to guide the company into its next stage of growth."

Saban’s successes have run the gamut from critically acclaimed theatrical films like Tommy Lee Jones’ The Homesman, to premiere VOD titles including I Am Wrath starring John Travolta, to one of the biggest Fathom events in 2016 with Rob Zombie’s horror thriller 31
