Janet Mock Announces Historic Deal With Netflix

Janet Mock just announced a historic overall deal with Netflix.

The 36-year-old Pose director, producer and writer signed a three-year multimillion-dollar agreement with the streaming service to give them exclusive rights to her TV series and a first-look option on feature film projects.

“I’m excited to announce that I am partnering with Netflix to tell stories on a global platform. So proud to join the ranks of digital content moguls as the first trans woman to call her own creative shots at a major content company,” Janet said on her Twitter.

She added in a statement to Variety, “As someone who grew up in front of the TV screen, whether that was watching talk shows or family sitcoms or VHS films, I never thought that I would be embraced. And more than embraced. Given not just a seat at the table but a table of my own making.”

Janet is currently developing a half-hour drama and a college series as part of the agreement.
