Electric Entertainment, Inc. is an American independent television and media production company, established in 2001 by veteran writer/producer Dean Devlin and led by Devlin along with partners Marc Roskin and Rachel Olschan.[1][2][3]


Electric Entertainment was established when many workers of Centropolis Entertainment, including Dean Devlin left to form its organization in 2001. This included its development slate, that were originally controlled by Centropolis, including the film Eight Legged Freaks, which is the first film to be produced by the company.[4][5]

Later that year, the studio struck a deal with Paramount Pictures in order to gain Electric access to Paramount's development slate.[6]

Five years later, the studio struck a deal with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer to distribute its content for feature films.[7]

In 2019, the studio launched its own streaming service, Electric Now, to provide its content for the OTT streaming range and it will run for all digital platforms.[8]

Electric Visual Effects (EFX)

EFX is the in-house division of Electric Entertainment and headed by Mark Franco. The company consists of film industry veterans who had previously collaborated on projects produced by Dean Devlin.
