Imagine Entertainment acquires Tony Hernandez’s Jax Media

ImagineImagine Entertainment has acquired Jax Media, the fast-growing production banner headed by Tony Hernandez. The terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

New York-based Jax Media has made a name for itself by producing auteur-driven comedy series and specials for modest budgets. Hernandez will continue to oversee day-to-day operations of the company. Jax is home to TBS’ “Full Frontal With Samantha Bee” and “Search Party,” Comedy Central’s “Broad City” and “Inside Amy Schumer,” BET’s “The Rundown with Robin Thede,” TV Land’s “Younger” and ABC’s “Roseanne” revival, among other shows.

Imagine Entertainment principal Brian Grazer said, “Our company’s roots are in comedy, and I am excited to work with Tony and Jax Media to build upon what Ron (Howard) and I first started. Tony has a keen eye for talent and exceptional taste and execution”.
