After dominating the basketball court for years, Steph Curry just made a 3-pointer in the world of entertainment.

The 30-year-old point guard who led the Golden State Warriors to two NBA championships recently started a production company called Unanimous Media -- a reference to the unanimous decision to make him NBA Most Valuable Player in 2016. On Monday, The Hollywood Reporter reported that Unanimous signed a multi-year development deal with Sony Entertainment.

Unanimous plans to produce a range of family-friendly and faith-based content for film and television, as well as some sports-focused media. Per the agreement, Sony will get first look at any potential projects, including those in electronics, gaming and virtual reality.

“I’ve been blessed to have this platform and I want to use it to affect the world positively,” Curry told The Hollywood Reporter.

It's unclear how much the deal is worth, but it comes not long after Curry signed his newest contract with the Warriors that pays $201 million over five years -- the NBA's richest deal and the biggest sports contract outside of baseball. That's on top of the $35 million he receives annually from endorsement deals.
