Disney alums Kevin Mayer and Tom Staggs are in the early stages of shopping for content companies to roll up into a larger venture with backing from private equity giant Blackstone. High on the pair’s wish list is Scooter Braun’s media and management firm SB Projects.
A source close to the situation characterized the situation as limited to Mayer and Staggs expressing interest in a potential deal with Braun’s firm. The source stressed that no formal negotiations have begun.
Any deal would be separate from the Forest Road Acquisition Corp. venture that Mayer and Staggs recently joined as senior advisors.
