Tyler Perry Lands Mega First Look Multi-Year Deal With Streaming Giant Netflix
Tyler Perry continues to make strides in history, and his latest deal shows it. Tyler Perry has landed a mega. deal with the streaming giant Netflix.
This multi-year deal gives Tyler Perry yet another platform to do some big things. According to Variety, there are already some big things in the works. One of the projects in the works involves Oprah and Kerry Washington. It’s centered around a battalion in World War II that is made up of all black women. This is a film I wouldn’t mind watching and there is also another in the works that I wouldn’t mind watching either. The project is called “Mea Culpa” with Kelly Rowland. She plays the role of an attorney who defends an artist for killing his partner. I’m not sure if I’ve ever seen Kelly Rowland act in that type of role, but I would love to see it.
Also according to Variety, Tyler Perry noted that Netflix as well as Amazon were great partners. If you all remember, Perry has a few shows on BET and BET+. Rumors circled for a short time that Perry was purchasing BET from Viacom. I wasn’t ready to report it because I had yet to find something concrete that made me believe it was true. Shortly after, stories started to release that the rumor was just indeed that. A rumor. Check out the announcement.
