Regina King has signed a first look deal with Netflix.
The multi-hyphenate is blossoming right now with her work in front of and behind the camera. She’s fresh off of an Oscar win for If Beale Street Could Talk and an Emmy win for her role in Netflix’s limited series, Seven Seconds.
She’ll produce films and series for the streaming service through her Royal Ties production company. Her sister, Reina King, will serve as head of production.
“Regina King is a multi-faceted talent both behind and in front of the camera. She’s been a trailblazer for years, with boundless creativity and impeccable taste in projects, and we couldn’t be more thrilled that she will bring her formidable talents to Netflix,” said Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer, Netflix.
“I am beyond thrilled to join the Netflix family. They are at the top of their game and as an artist, I am so excited to come play in this wonderful sandbox they have created for storytellers,” said King.
Aside from acting, King has been actively directing episodes of television, helming episodes of The Good Doctor, Insecure, This Is Us and others. She’s next starring in Damon Lindelof’s adaptation of Watchmen for HBO.
