The New York- and Los Angeles-based company, launched a year ago by Abigail Disney and 'First Reformed' production company Killer Content, said Saturday that it has acquired a 50% stake in Film Powered, a free website that seeks to connect experienced women with job opportunities in the entertainment industry....
