Jennifer Lopez Just Signed a Netflix Deal
More J.Lo? Yes, please.
Jennifer Lopez is coming to Netflix.
Variety reports that the multi-hyphenate and her production company, Nuyorican Productions, inked a multi-year, first-look deal with the streamer. Along with her producing partners Benny Medina and Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas, Lopez will produce scripted and unscripted film and TV content, aimed at showcasing diverse female actors, writers, and filmmakers.
"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," Lopez said in a statement. "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."
This isn't Lopez's first Netflix outing - the streamer previously announced two J.Lo movies, action film The Mother and The Cipher, based on the novel of the same name by Isabella Maldonado.
According to Variety, J.Lo is currently training for her role in The Mother, which sees her as a deadly assassin who comes out of hiding to teach her daughter how to survive.
