Fox Entertainment and its global in-house studio division MarVista Entertainment announced the formation of Tideline Entertainment. The new production label will focus on creating impactful and meaningful content with unique perspectives from differentiated storytellers, voices and creators worldwide, according to the group.

Under the leadership of Hannah Pillemer, MarVista's Executive Vice President and Head of Creative & Production, Tideline projects will range from features and independent films to limited series, made-for-platform content and other cross-genre formats based on what best supports the creative vision of each story and storyteller.

The inaugural project under the Tideline banner will be “Ponyboi,” the first and only movie to explore the experiences of an intersex character in a project written, produced and starring intersex talent. Launched on January 20 in the prestigious Sundance Film Festival's Drama Competition, River Gallo's “Ponyboi” follows a young intersex sex worker forced to confront their past while running from the mob after a drug deal goes sideways.

“The tideline is the mark left by the tide when it reaches its highest point. We envision the Tideline banner to be synonymous with the most impactful genre storytelling and the home for creators to be their authentic selves as they share their stories with the world. Under this vision, Tideline is already supporting exciting and important projects, starting with River Gallo's tremendous film 'Ponyboi,'”  Pillemer said.

“I have always believed that we must continue to build and evolve as a studio and storytellers, and now, as we celebrate MarVista's 20th anniversary and our second year as a part of the Fox Entertainment family, our growth story continues. We are proud to establish Tideline as our new in-house production unit, allowing us to emphatically broaden the stories we will bring to the world,”  said Fernando Szew, CEO of MarVista Entertainment and FOX Entertainment Global.

In addition to “Ponyboi,” the first titles to bear the Tideline label are 2023's comedy “First Time Female Director,” which made its debut at the Tribeca Film Festival, and three more upcoming films from first time female directors: satirical thriller “Slanted” by director Amy Wang, action comedy “The BM” from director Rachel Goldberg, and the coming of age story “Hurricane Summer,” directed by Lacey Duke.
