Netflix has set an overall deal with yet another prolific producer: Marti Noxon. The streamer announced on Monday that it entered into a multi-year pact with the Emmy-nominated writer, producer and director.
Under the pact, Noxon will produce new TV series exclusively for Netflix. The streamer will also have a first-look option on Noxon’s feature projects. She will continue to produce all projects under her Tiny Pyro banner, with Maria Grasso — president of the production company — making the move to Netflix with her.
Among Noxon’s most recent projects as creator-showrunner are HBO’s Amy Adams-led limited series “Sharp Objects” and AMC’s recently-canceled freshman series “Dietland,” and “UnREAL.”
Noxon’s two-decades-long small-screen career includes work on series like “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Mad Men,” “Glee,” and” Grey’s Anatomy.” On the big screen, Noxon made wrote and made her feature directorial debut with Netflix’s “To the Bone,” which premiered in competition at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival.
“Marti Noxon is a brilliant and visionary creator who explores emotional depths to reveal the inner lives and struggles of complex, modern women,” said Cindy Holland, vice president, Original Content at Netflix. “Her work is often both brave and vulnerable, with a distinct voice, sense of humor and tone that is uniquely her own.”
“Who can resist the allure of Netflix?” said Noxon. “Not only do they continually produce ground-breaking and visually stunning content, they’ve developed a platform that’s so influential its become a verb. I Netflix at home, happily, and now I’m even more excited to Netflix for a living.”
She joins a growing list of producers and showrunners who are signing overalls at Netflix, including Kenya Barris, Shonda Rhimes and Ryan Murphy, who all set packs with the streamer in exchange for big paydays.
Noxon is repped by WME and Hansen Jacobson.
