Career:

In 1995, Nancy Juvonen and actress Drew Barrymore, whom she met through her brother Jim,   formed a production company in Los Angeles called Flower Films. Their first film, “Never Been Kissed,” went into producing in 1988 with Juvonen and Barrymore producing, along with Sandy Isaac. Made as part of their first-look deal with 20th Century Fox, the romantic comedy movie hit theaters on on April 9, 1999 and went on to gross over $84.5 million worldwide against a budget of $25 million.  The same year, Flower Films also produced the CGI animated Christmas television special “Olive, the Other Reindeer,” with 20th Century Fox Television. Receiving a credit as an executive producer, Juvonen jointly netted an Emmy nomination in the category of Outstanding Animated Program (For Programming More Than One Hour) for her work in the film.

Entering the new millennium, Flower Films collaborated with Leonard Goldberg Productions and Tall Trees to produce the film adaptation of the 1970s television  series, “Charlie's Angels.” Starring Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore, and Lucy Liu as three women working for a private investigation agency, the film version was released on November 3, 2000 and enjoyed a commercials success despite receiving mixed reviews from critics. It made a worldwide total of $264,105,545 worldwide against a budget of $93 million. They also produced the equally successful sequel “Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle” (2003).

In conjunction with Newmarket and Gaylord Films, Flower Films launched the independent feature “Donnie Darko” in 2001, with Juvonen and Barrymore serving as producers, along with Adam Fields and Sean McKittrick. Directed and written by Richard Kelly, the psychological thriller was not a success at the box office, but it has earned widespread critical acclaim and has developed a large cult following. Juvonen also had a small part in the film as a flight attendant.

In 2003, Flower Films and Ben Stiller's Red Hour Films produced the black comedy film  “Duplex,” which was directed by Danny DeVito and starred Stiller and Barrymore. It received mixed reviews from critics and made a worldwide total of 19,322,135 on a $40 million budget.  

In collaboration with Adam Sandler's company, Happy Madison, Flower Films made “50 First Dates,” a romantic/comedy film starring Barrymore and Sandler and directed by Peter Segal, with Juvonen producing along with Jack Giarraputo and Steve Golin. Distributed by Columbia Pictures, the film hit the theaters in the US on February 13, 2004 and grossed $196,482,882 worldwide on a budget of $75 million. It received mixed reviews from critics. In 2005, Flower Films and The Farrelly brothers' Conundrum Entertainment completed the romance/comedy film “Fever Pitch,” starring Barrymore and Juvonen's future husband, Jimmy Fallon, and helmed by the Farrelly brothers.  

2007 saw Juvonen serve as an executive producer on “Music and Lyrics,” a romance/comedy film directed by Marc Lawrence and starring Hugh Grant, Drew Barrymore, Brad Garrett and Kristen Johnston. IT received rave reviews from critics and made a worldwide total of $145,896,422, with over $50 million from the US and Canada. She went on to produce the Ken Kwapis romantic/comedy film “He's Just Not That Into You” (2009), which was a success at the box office despite mixed reception, and to executive produce “Whip It” (2009), the directorial debut of Drew Barrymore. Adapted from the novel “Derby Girl” by Shauna Cross, who also wrote the script, the latter movie earned mostly positive reviews from critics but was a disappointment financially.  

Along with Flower Films, Juvonen revisited the small screen when she and Barrymore executive produced a reality television series on VH1 called “Tough Love,” which debuted on March 15, 2009. She also received credit as a creator. Juvonen next executive produced a reboot television series, “Charlie's Angels,” which ran on ABC from September 22 to November 10, 2011.
