Adapted from the 30 million-read Wattpad sensation by Tay Marley.A true story of love, finding one’s self, and breaking stereotypes.

LOS ANGELES – March 31, 2022 —

Creator+, a new content studio and distribution platform for digital-first storytellers and creators, will produce alongside Wattpad WEBTOON Studios, the fan-driven global entertainment and publishing arm for WEBTOON and Wattpad.
The QB Bad Boy and Me is based on Tay Marley’s Wattpad sensation of the same name, which currently has over 30 million reads on the platform and the published novel has been one of the top-selling titles from Wattpad Books. Writer Mary Gulino (Disney+'s Haley's On It, Amazon’s Upload) will adapt for the screen.Impassioned by the art of dance and driven by its means to help her escape a sleepy small town, high school cheerleader Dallas Bryan is intent on receiving a coveted dance scholarship at CalArts, and nothing - or no one - is going to stand in her way. That is… until the star high school quarterback, Drayton Lahey (Beck) crashes into her life.Beck has quickly established himself as one of today’s most sought-after multi-hyphenate creatives. The social media sensation, with over 45 million combined followers, has continually distinguished himself as an actor, model, athlete and entrepreneur, solidifying his mark on the industry. Beck currently serves as Executive Producer and can be seen in the second season of his own series with Paramount and Awesomeness, Noah Beck Tries Things, and most recently made his scripted acting debut in the hit Nickelodeon series, Side Hustle. He additionally has expanded his presence into other arenas and launched his first podcast, Put a Sock In It, which he hosts alongside content creator and recording artist, Larri “Larray” Merritt.“I am thrilled to be partnering with this incredible team and am honored to bring Tay’s beloved story and characters to life,” said Beck. “I can’t wait to get to work and to dive in on all creative aspects of the film.”Aron Levitz and Lindsey Weems Ramey from Wattpad WEBTOON Studios are set to produce alongside Adam Wescott, Nick Phillips, and McKenna Marshall from Creator+, with production scheduled to begin this summer. Beck will also produce with his manager Maxwell Mitcheson serving as executive producer.“Noah’s rabid audience combined with QB’s proven readership create the perfect storm for a film adaptation,'' said Adam Wescott, head of studio for Creator+. “We’re excited for this playful and sweet YA comedy to come to life.”“The QB Bad Boy and Me is an incredible opportunity to combine Noah’s amazing fandom with the massive global fan community that has been electrified by Tay Marley’s story,” said Aron Levitz, President of Wattpad WEBTOON Studios. “Readers have fallen in love with The QB Bad Boy and Me on Wattpad and in bookstores, so we’re thrilled to work with Noah and Creator+ to bring this story to life on screens everywhere.”Creator+’s inaugural feature, the psychological thriller, Jane (early 2022), stars Madelaine Petsch (Riverdale), who’s also producing; 5x Grammy-nominated singer songwriter, pop-infused R&B sensation Chlöe Bailey (part of the sister duo Chloe X Halle); Melissa Leo, who won an Oscar for the Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role for The Fighter, Ian Owens; and model Chloe Yu.Additional productions include comedy Diamond in the Rough (Summer 2022), starring actress Samantha Boscarino (Disney’s Good Luck Charlie), and TikTok megastar, entrepreneur and former Sway House member Griffin Johnson (Ridiculousness), who stars and also produced.The QB Bad Boy and Me follows a string of hit romance adaptations from Wattpad WEBTOON Studios, which has established itself as one of the most in-demand sources for romance and New Adult hits.

LOS ANGELES – July 22, 2021 — Creator+, a next-generation content studio and distribution platform for digital-first storytellers and creators, announced today they will finance and produce their first feature length film JANE, starring Madelaine Petsch (Riverdale), who’s also producing, in the lead role as Olivia. JANE will also feature 5x Grammy-nominated singer songwriter, pop-infused R&B sensation Chlöe Bailey (part of the sister duo Chloe X Halle), playing the role of Izzy, Melissa Leo as Principal Rhodes, who won an Oscar for the Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role for The Fighter, Ian Owens as Mr. Richardson, and model Chloe Yu as Jane to round out the ensemble cast.Written by Sabrina Jaglom and Rishi Rajani, and with Jaglom set to make her directorial debut, the film centers on a seemingly perfect high school senior, Olivia, who struggles with grief from the recent loss of a friend. When she gets deferred from her dream college, she begins to spiral and experiences a series of increasingly frightening panic attacks. In an attempt to regain some sense of control, she embarks on a social media-fueled rampage against those that stand in the way of her success but, as things escalate, she is forced to confront – and ultimately embrace – her darkest impulses in order to get ahead.“Mental wellness and anxiety issues for young adults are more prevalent than ever. JANE resonated with me because it grapples with the perils of these uncomfortable and often taboo topics,” said Madelaine Petsch."Complicated female characters of this age are rarely featured at the center of their own stories, free of the whims of adults or their male counterparts,” said Sabrina Jaglom. “Furthermore, mental health concerns are so rarely taken seriously in young adults, particularly high functioning ones. I hope this film sparks conversations around these topics while treating the viewer to a dark, thrilling ride."Production will begin at the end of July in Albuquerque, NM and also features Ian Owens (Shrill) as Mr. Richardson; Kerri Medders (SEAL Team, Alexa & Katie) as Josa; and Nina Bloomgarden (Fatherhood) as Camille. Debbie Liebling will produce (Hulu’s PEN15; 65; Plus One) alongside producer and Creator+ Head of Production Nick Phillips (Gunpowder & Sky's Alt; Facebook Watch’s The Real Bros of Simi Valley) and Creator+ Head of Content Studio Adam Wescott (YouTube Original’s This Is Everything: Gigi Gorgeous) and Petsch.“Creator+ is reimagining how stories are developed and told through the eyes of Gen Z. We’re thrilled to partner with Madelaine who perfectly blends the worlds of traditional entertainment with a large online presence to tell great stories,” said Adam Wescott, Head of Content Studio, Creator+.
Shepherding today’s digital sensations, the vertically integrated Creator+ provides financing, development, in-house production, distribution, marketing, ecommerce and film-related merchandise, operations and community capabilities for talent, monetizing through their existing audience and beyond, across mobile, web and connected-TV. Creator+ creates a new pathway for the future of storytelling; a place where they can take artistic risks and create projects based on their creative vision and passion and participate in the backend as equal partners. Ultimately, Creators have unprecedented equity in their projects and a seat at the table.
Sabrina Jaglom is represented by UTA/Grandview; Madelaine Petsch with CAA/ Mosaic; Chlöe Bailey with CAA; and Chloe Yu with Zero Gravity Management.

A creative call to filmmakers to begin today, with finalists to be selected by mid-October 2021.Creator+ is committed to empowering a new generation of diverse creators to make impactful feature films that tell authentic, relevant stories which inspire hope and action in today's young, digitally native audiences. The innovative studio and distribution platform is creating opportunities for those who have something to say, while embracing projects that explore the full dimension of the BIPOC experience.

Film exposes audiences to experiences and identities they may never have encountered. It changes hearts and minds.

Our mission is to support the next-generation of storytellers and industry leaders to create a more inclusive and equitable entertainment industry.”The Creator+ Diversity and Impact Advisory Board includes top change agents in entertainment such as executives, producers, showrunners committed to fighting for increased diversity and inclusion in Hollywood. The committee will select projects with a purpose — those that seek to tell unique and underrepresented stories and prioritize diverse crews' involvement in their production; and champion intersectionality by prioritizing creators across multiple identities within the BIPOC community, including gender, sexuality, socio-economic class, age, ability, etc. Eligible creators and filmmakers can be a college film major, an up-and-coming TV writer looking to break out as a director or digital creator/YouTuber focusing on narrative storytelling.Submission criteria to enter includes:
