The company's predecessor was an entertainment production studio Northern Lights Entertainment, owned by Reitman. It originally started off with a deal at PolyGram Filmed Entertainment. Ultimately, the deal was in a dispute after Universal took control of the PolyGram assets and signed a first look deal with DreamWorks Pictures instead. On March 9, 2000, it extended its pact with writer/director Todd Phillips, after the success of the hit movie Road Trip.
After several years at DreamWorks, on February 18, 2009, the company signed a first-look deal with Paramount Pictures. The deal was ended on March 16, 2013; and in 2015 the company moved into offices on the Sony lot. Tom Pollock died in August 2020, and Ivan Reitman in February 2022.
