This is Jennifer Aniston's second production company. She previously founded Plan B Entertainment with Brad Pitt and Brad Grey in 2002. In 2006, after Pitt and Aniston divorced, and Grey became the CEO of Paramount Pictures, Pitt became the sole owner of the company. Kristin Hahn also has another production company that she created in 2015 named Hahnscape Entertainment.
On the choice of the projects, Hahn said: "We particularly like working from books and real-life stories about distinct characters that embody something relatable and relevant about human nature's double-sided coin of vulnerability and mettle." On the name of the company, Aniston added that they were "drawn to stories about people finding their voice and finding their way because they help us as listeners and viewers do what we feel we're all trying to do, which is making sense of our lives through the stories of others. That's why we chose the name Echo, to echo back an idea, a challenge, something that resonates through all of us."
