MWM Studios, formerly known as OddLot Entertainment,[1] is an American production company founded in 2001 by longtime producers Gigi Pritzker and Deborah Del Prete (The Wedding Planner),[2] and is based in Los Angeles, California.


In 2013, OddLot signed a multiyear, multipicture distribution and co-financing deal with Lionsgate. OddLot and Lionsgate partnered together previously to produce Draft Day and Ender's Game. Their partnership officially began with the production of Mortdecai.[3]

In 2015, the studio was merged into a new company called Madison Wells Media, co-founded by OddLot co-founder Gigi Pritzker.[4]

In April 2017, OddLot promoted Rachel Shane from President of Production to Chief Creative Officer, and hired Adrian Alperovich to be Chief Operating Officer.[5]

In November 2017, as part of Madison Wells Media's rebranding to MWM, OddLot Entertainment was renamed to MWM Studios. Shane and Alperovich will continue to be CCO and COO, respectively.[1]
