Netflix strikes another major overall first-look deal.
Multiple outlets confirm that the streamer has inked a multi-year production overall commitment with Titmouse, the animation company behind the hit comedy Big Mouth. Under the deal announced Monday, Netflix will have a first look at shows Titmouse develops.
“When Netflix asked if we wanted to go steady, we were thrilled. When we asked if it could be an open relationship, they said, ‘Yeah, of course. It’s the 21st century, kid. That’s the only way we’ll have it.’ Now we are friends with benefits and I couldn’t be more stoked,” said Titmouse founder Chris Prynoski. “This new and exciting relationship will help quench our relentless thirst for producing animated cartoons. Excuse me, I’m gonna go carve NF+TM on a tree now.”
In addition to partnering on Big Mouth, Netflix and Titmouse have also partnered on several other adult animated series including the recently ordered The Midnight Gospel.
“Titmouse has been at the forefront of the evolving animation industry and is the creative force behind an impressive variety of projects, including our very own Big Mouth and The Midnight Gospel, Mike Moon, head of adult animation at Netflix said. “We’re thrilled to expand our collaboration with Chris, Shannon, and the entire team at Titmouse as we continue to develop and produce bold original animation together.”
