“Wow. This should be a movie.”

Over the decades we’ve heard that kind of thing a lot at Sports Illustrated. We hear it from readers captivated by the latest piece of absorbing, inspiring, moving and thought-provoking storytelling in the magazine or on SI.com. From listeners who can’t wait to download the next episode of a deep-dive SI podcast. From writers and editors passionately pitching an idea for the next entry into the Sports Illustrated canon of classics. From documentary producers and feature filmmakers who see the multiplatform potential both in the work we do today and in the vast SI archive that dates back to 1954.

With a few exceptions, those movie wishes have usually been little more than cinematic daydreaming. That all changes today with the launch of Sports Illustrated Studios, a new joint venture between SI’s parent company, Authentic Brands Group, and global entertainment production house 101 Studios. SI Studios will be the exclusive vehicle to develop, produce and distribute long-form film, television and audio content based on the work and ideas that SI features in print and online.

“SI has been home to the greatest stories in the sports world, told by some of the greatest writers anywhere,” says David Glasser, CEO of 101 Studios. “It’s thrilling to be able to take those stories past, present and future and bring them to life in all formats.”
