Under the deal, she will work on premium scripted series via her newly formed production banner Federal Engineering. Irene Marquette will serve as the company’s head of development.

We’re thrilled to work with Federal Engineering and re-team with Dahvi, who has a longstanding relationship with Lionsgate dating back to ‘Mad Men,’” said Scott Herbst, head of scripted development and executive vice president of Lionsgate TV.
