Plan B was launched in late 2001 between Pitt and former spouse/actress Jennifer Aniston. When the duo divorced, Pitt took over the label in 2005.

Plan B has been behind several notable movies including Ad Astra, Vice, The Big Short, World War Z and If Beale Street Could Talk.

On the TV side, the company won a Primetime Emmy Award for HBO’s limited series The Normal Heart and landed Emmy nominations for Feud: Bette and Joan, documentary Big Men and TV movie Nightingale.

Several boutique production companies have nabbed big investors of late, i.e. Kevin Mayer and Tom Stagss’ Candle Media, which picked up Reese Witherspoon’s Hello Sunshine for $100 million shy of $ 1 billion, A24 getting a $225 million investment with Stripes as the led investor. Parasite Oscar winner NEON recently tapped Merchant Bank Raine in exploring a possible sale.
