About Your Host

Jalessa Jones’ is the Director of Development at Sabrina Wind Productions. Jalessa began her career assisting two hungry literary managers at Circle of Confusion, the VP of Production at Columbia Pictures (Sony), and the president of a smaller, independent studio called Media Res that focused on prestige, character driven television projects (currently in production on THE UNTITLED MORNING SHOW PROJECT starring Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Aniston, and Steve Carell. Set to premiere this fall on Apple’s new streaming service.) Jalessa’s involvement with both the buying and selling side of the business gives her experience liaising with clients and their reps, developing material, interfacing with executives, and a high-level understanding of the decision-making process most studio execs employ and how that informs which projects they buy.

Jalessa recently accepted an amazing opportunity to help build a new production company from the ground up with the lovely and talented Sabrina Wind. Sabrina worked very closely with Marc Cherry (DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES, DEVIOUS MAIDS), developing under their joint banner Cherry/Wind Productions for years, and now she has the chance to create her own brand and produce shows under her own banner, which has a production deal with ABC Studios.
