Drew Taggart and Alex Pall of The Chainsmokers have formed Kick the Habit Productions, under which they’ll develop and produce film, TV and digital projects.
Dan Marcus, a former digital media agent at UTA, has been named chief operating officer and president and will oversee development and production for the company. Adam Alpert, the duo’s manager and CEO of Disruptor Records, will serve as the new company’s CEO.
Kick the Habit’s first project is “Paris,” which is based on a pitch by Mickey Rapkin and inspired by The Chainsmokers’ song of the same name. Rapkin will also write the screenplay.
Taggart, Pall, and Marcus will produce under the Kick The Habit banner, with Entertainment 360.
