Lauren Sanchez has launched a new production company.
The 44-year-old Emmy-winning news anchor/entertainment reporter has formed Pursuit Productions with Dan Friedkin.
The company will focus on telling compelling real life stories from around the world.
Pursuit Productions already has its first documentary feature in the works, Found, and closed a deal with Mark Monroe to pen the film.
The documentaryfollows the search for those pilots whose planes were lost in The Battle of Peleliu during World War II. Also joining the search for the missing pilots in the film is former United States Navy Seal Marcus Luttrell, whose memoir Lone Survivor was adapted into the 2013 Universal Studios film of the same name starring Mark Wahlberg.
Friedkin and Sanchez, in conjunction with Imperative Entertainment, are also filming a pilot, On the Road, which follows the death-defying adventures of The Horsemen, the world’s only vintage P-51 aerobatic flight team.
Sanchez, who served as a guest-host on ABC’s The View this morning, is considered a frontrunner to join the daytime talk show as a co-host.
