He’s been putting out great content for seven years with his Gary Sanchez Productions company and Will Ferrell has decided it’s time to give the ladies some love as well.

Along with his partners Adam McKay and Chris Henchy, the “Anchorman: The Legend Continues” hunk has formed Gloria Sanchez Productions and named Jessica Elbaum as the head honcho.

Will and Adam released a statement to explain the venture- "When Jessica came to us with this idea, we thought it was fantastic. She has worked with some of the great female voices in comedy and has proven herself as a gifted producer who has a keen eye for material."

"We called Gary [the fake guy they named the company after], and he loved the idea as well, and asked that we name it after his favorite step-granddaughter, Gloria Sanchez."
