Given how successful Spike Lee’s previous collaborations with Netflix have been, it’s no wonder they are teaming up again for another creative partnership.
Academy Award and Oscar winner filmmaker Lee and his 40 Acres and a Mule Filmworks collaborated with Netflix on Da 5 Bloods, the She’s Gotta Have It series, and more.
The new multi-year creative partnership with Netflix has Lee directing and producing narrative features for the streaming service.
“There is no better way for me and my company 40 Acres and a Mule Filmworks to begin the new year than renew our partnership with Ted, Scott and Tendo – Da fearless leaders of Netflix. Besides my joints, we together will focus on the new diverse storytellers,” said Lee.
“Throughout Spike’s incredible career, his writing and directing have remained searing and insightful about our times, while still being incredibly entertaining,” said Netflix’s head of global film, Scott Stuber. “We’re privileged to enter this new partnership with Spike and look forward to bringing the next chapter of films from Brooklyn’s very own to the world.”
Netflix has also committed to investing in and providing financial support for Lee’s continued objective to foster new talent and boost representation in the entertainment industry through the renewed partnership, which is set to begin in January.
