J.Lo has signed on the dotted line.
Jennifer Lopez, actress, singer and CEO of the television production company Nuyorican Productions, has inked a multiyear, first-look deal with Netflix, Variety first reported. As part of the deal, Lopez will produce both scripted and unscripted movie and TV content for the streaming behemoth.
Benny Medina, who co-founded Nuyorican with Lopez, and Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas, the company’s president, will co-produce alongside Lopez.
“I am excited to announce my new partnership with Netflix,” Lopez told the publication. “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.”
“Throughout every aspect of her career, Jennifer Lopez has been a force in entertainment. In partnering with her and Nuyorican, we know she will continue to bring impactful stories, joy and inspiration to audiences around the world,” Netflix’s head of global films, Scott Stuber, told Variety in a statement.
