Netflix has signed “Orange Is the New Black” creator Jenji Kohan to an exclusive multiyear deal. Under the terms of the pact, the “GLOW” executive producer will produce new original series and other projects for the streaming giant.
“Bold, outspoken and totally fearless, Jenji has constantly raised the bar for storytelling at Netflix,” said Cindy Holland, vice president of Original Content at Netflix. “She possesses a rare and special talent to say what’s unspoken, choose the unexpected over the safe and drive the cultural conversation — and audiences love her for it. She has been with us from the beginning and we could not be more thrilled to continue working together over the coming years.”
Said Kohan, “Current climate aside, it’s great to be in bed with Netflix.”
Kohan is repped by CAA and attorney Robert Getman.
