Brad Falchuk Inks Overall Deal at Netflix

The writer-producer is heading to Netflix. 

Multiple outlets confirm that Brad Falchuk has inked a massive four-year overall deal with the streaming giant. According to sources, the Glee, American Horror Story and American Crime Story executive producer’s deal is in the eight-figure range. 

Under the deal, Falchuk will develop, write, produce and direct new series for Netflix through his Brad Falchuk Teley-Vision banner. 

“We are thrilled to welcome Brad Falchuk to Netflix,” said Cindy Holland, VP of Original Content at Netflix. “As a storyteller, Brad is a taste maker and trail blazer, and he is a writer/director with a true knack for piercing the cultural zeitgeist. There is no limit to what Brad can accomplish with Netflix as his new home.”

Falchuk is the latest name to set an overall deal as the market for original content talent is becoming more and more competitive. He joins Ryan Murphy and Shonda Rhimes who also opted for Netflix rather than a traditional studio. 

Falchuk’s deal with 20th Century Fox Television expires June 1.
