Netflix Signs Overall Deal With ‘Big Mouth’ Animation Studio

Deal includes first-look option for all animated series created by Titmouse

Netflix has signed an overall deal with Titmouse, the Emmy-winning animation studio behind the Nick Kroll-co-created adult comedy series “Big Mouth.”

The multi-year production commitment overall deal includes a first-look option for Netflix on any adult animated series developed and created at the studio.

In addition to “Big Mouth,” Titmouse and Netflix also collaborated on the upcoming “The Midnight Gospel” series from Pendleton Ward and Duncan Trussell.

“Titmouse has been at the forefront of the evolving animation industry and is the creative force behind an impressive variety of projects, including our very own ‘Big Mouth’ and ‘The Midnight Gospel,'” Mike Moon, head of adult animation for Netflix, said. “We’re thrilled to expand our collaboration with Chris, Shannon, and the entire team at Titmouse as we continue to develop and produce bold original animation together.”

“When Netflix asked if we wanted to go steady, we were thrilled. When we asked if it could be an open relationship, they said, ‘Yeah, of course. It’s the 21st century, kid. That’s the only way we’ll have it.’ Now we are friends with benefits and I couldn’t be more stoked,” Chris Prynoski, president and founder of Titmouse, said. “This new and exciting relationship will help quench our relentless thirst for producing animated cartoons. Excuse me, I’m gonna go carve NF+TM on a tree now.”
