Nisha Ganatra Inks Overall Deal With ABC Studios, Launches Ladies’ Car Productions

Exclusive: Late Night director Nisha Ganatra has signed a two-year overall deal with ABC Studios, a division of Disney Television Studios. Under the pact, Ganatra will write, direct and develop projects across all platforms through her newly launched Ladies’ Car Productions banner.

The overall deal with Ganatra follows ABC Studios’ overall pact with prolific TV episodic director Maggie Carey announced last week, part of the studio’s commitment to female directors.

Ganatra most recently directed the film Late Night, starring Emma Thompson, who was just nominated for a Golden Globe for the film, and Mindy Kaling. The film premiered at Sundance and was sold to Amazon in a record-breaking deal.

As director-producer of Amazon’s Transparent, Ganatra shared in the series’ Golden Globe win and its Emmy nomination for best comedy. Ganatra served as co-executive producer/director on Better Things with Pamela Adlon and co-executive producer/director on You Me Her.
