Eleonore Dailly started in development at Dreamworks SKG’s story department while directing her first feature documentary CHICAS. As an independent producer, she single handedly packaged and produced the commercial hit SWELTER, starring Alfred Molina, Catalina Sandino Moreno, and Lennie James, which sold out in over 30 countries, and co-directed the groundbreaking documentary DIRT in 8 countries. Featuring Jamie Lee Curtis, the award-winning film received a standing ovation during its Sundance premiere and generated several environmental initiatives. Eleonore also produced Netflix' breakout gender-bending comedy I AM NOT AN EASY MAN which has been recommended by the Danish Commission on Gender Equality and SISTER CITIES, a passion project developed by Alfred Molina, starring Oscar nominated Jacki Weaver. Eleonore Dailly’s first foray into television included three seasons on the FX Emmy-winning series JUSTIFIED.
Under the mentorship of Professor Jane Ginsburg, she received her law degree from Columbia School of Law and is admitted to practice in New York, Paris and before the U.S. Supreme Court. Eleonore also holds an MFA degree in Cinematics Arts from the University of Southern California’s Peter Stark Program. She is a member of the Television Academy and the Producer’s Guild of America and a mentor in the PGA’s Power of Diversity Workshop.
