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.
