Singer, Actress and dancer, businessman............Jennifer Lopez has signed a new multi-year deal with streaming giant, Netflix. Feature films, a TV series, and unscripted content - with an emphasis on supporting diverse female actors, writers, and filmmakers - is all on the way.
Jennifer Lopez is soon to be following in the same footsteps as Harry and Meghan as the singer/dancer has signed a multi-year deal with Netflix. The bumper deal is said to include feature films, TV series and unscripted content, with an emphasis on supporting diverse female actors, writers, and filmmakers.
Of the feature projects, two are currently in the works at Jennifer’s Nuyorican Productions, with filming due to begin this autumn for The Mother, and The Cipher. The 51-year-old recently announced the deal and said there is “no better home” than Netflix, for her content.
“I am excited to announce my new partnership with Netflix. Elaine, Benny and I believe there is no better home for us than a forward-leaning content creation company that seeks to defy conventional wisdom and directly market to the millions across the globe who no longer view art and entertainment with the kind of boundaries and limitations of the past.
“We at Nuyorican Productions are thrilled to find like-minded partners in Ted Sarandos, Scott Stuber, Bela Bajaria, and the whole team and look forward to getting to work right away.”
Stuber, Netflix’ Head of Global Films said Jennifer Lopez has been “a force in entertainment” throughout “every aspect” of her career. Speaking on the partnership with Jen and Nuyorican, Stuber said they know the singer “will continue to bring impactful stories, joy and inspiration to audiences around the world.”
Jennifer’s deal follows that of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s deal with the streaming company, almost a year ago. The couple signed a deal which sees them producing films and a series for Netflix, including everything from scripted series to docu-series, documentaries and children’s programs. The young activist couple will have Invictus Games as their first documentary for the streaming giant.
