Jason Blum discusses Welcome to the Blumhouse

Amazon and Blumhouse were aligned in wanting to make original stories from diverse perspectives. It’s been a priority for both companies to work with women and underrepresented filmmakers and give a platform to new voices. One of the ways we’ve been able to make great movies and TV shows is to tap into pools of talent that haven’t been drawn on over the years.
