Gloria Sanchez Productions is an American film and television production company.


In 2014, Jessica Elbaum founded the production company as a sister label of Gary Sanchez Productions, founded by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay, with a focus on female voices in comedy. Elbaum has worked with Ferrell since the founding of Gary Sanchez Productions as an executive producer and pitched the idea to create a female-focused production company.[1][2] The logo is the same as its male counterpart, but a woman's hand pours the coffee, and a calico cat lies on the table.

In January 2020, the company was reorganized following the dissolution of Gary Sanchez Productions, and became Ferrell's primary production company while still maintaining a focus on female-centered stories. It entered a multi-year non-exclusive first-look television deal with Netflix, and also entered a feature multi-year deal with Paramount Pictures.[3] In 2021, it was moved to 20th Century Studios.[4]
