History

In 1992, Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall left Amblin Entertainment to form their own self-titled banner The Kennedy/Marshall Company with a three-year first look deal at Paramount Pictures. After leaving Amblin, Marshall directed and Kennedy produced Alive which was released in 1993 as a Kennedy/Marshall production;[2] however, the first film under their deal with Paramount was Milk Money (1994).[3]

In 1995, the duo left Paramount Pictures with a three-year production deal at the Walt Disney Studios.[4][5] In 1998, the company tried their first foray into television, signing a development pact with CBS to air Kennedy/Marshall's television shows for the network.[6] Later that same year, the studio left Disney for Universal Pictures, with an eleven-year deal.[7]

In 2005, Kennedy/Marshall entered its foray onto the Broadway fold to bring the Off Broadway revival Hurlyburly to Broadway.[8]

In 2009, they left Universal Pictures for Sony Pictures Entertainment.[9] Two years later, they left Sony Pictures for DreamWorks Pictures.[10]

In 2012, Kennedy left to join Lucasfilm as president.[11] During the same year, the studio signed a deal with CBS Television Studios to produce TV shows made for the company.[12]
