Odenkirk Provissiero Entertainment
Provissiero has produced projects working as a managing partner at Odenkirk Provissiero Entertainment, which he also co-founded.
The company made it to the headline of Deadline in 2020 when DC Wade, a former talent agent at WME (William Morris Endeavor Entertainment), joined hands with Odenkirk Provissiero, whose major figure included producing couple Naomi Odenkirk and Bob Odenkirk, including Marc Provissiero.
In an interview with Deadline, Wayde shared why he selected the company.
“Naomi, Marc, and the whole team have built something special,” Wade conveyed. “I’m excited to help expand and amplify the OPE brand as we continue into the next decade of the company.”
The 2021 action, crime, and drama amalgam, Nobody, produced by Bob Odenkirk, Marc Provissiero, Braden Aftergood, and Kelly McCormick, tells the story of a vengeful drug lord who hunted down a spectator who helped to save a woman being harassed by a group of guys.
The film is based on the true story of Bob Odenkirk and a harrowing house invasion he suffered in his own life. “I also had this experience in my personal life, where there was a break-in in my home, and it was very distressing to my family,” Odenkirk shared in a virtual interview with Cinema Blend in 2021. “It left me with incredibly powerful and profound feelings of fury, and I believed that if I could draw on those sentiments in that experience, I could launch a voyage into darkness, violence, and action.”
The temptation to convert those emotions into a rough-and-tumble action hero character was the driving force for the making of this film.
Starring as Hutch Mansell in the movie, Odenkirk primarily thought his manager, Marc Provissiero, would laugh at the concept of him portraying an action hero, but that was not the case. Instead, Provissiero was fully on board with the idea. The movie then found its way into the hands of producers Kelly McCormack and David Leitch due to Marc Provissiero’s involvement in making the movie a hit.
Provissiero holds the credit as one of the executive producers for roughly 17 episodes of the TV series PEN15 from 2019 to 2020. The series portrays the hilarious story of middle school as seen through the eyes of two seventh-grade girls battling with the insecurities of adolescence.
The idea was created by Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer, and Jorma Taccone of Lonely Island—who also served as executive producers alongside Becky Sloviter of Party Over Here and Marc Provissiero and Brooke Pobjoy of Odenkirk Provissiero Entertainment. Executive producers Debbie Liebling and Gabe Liedman were also involved.

Previously, the company had collaborated with Maya Erskine, Anna Konkle, and Sam Zvibleman to film a hilarious 15-minute pilot presentation and execute the alternative scripts.
