Jenji Kohan Inks Overall Netflix Deal


Jenji Kohan, creator of Orange Is the New Black, has entered into an exclusive multiyear deal with Netflix.

“Bold, outspoken and totally fearless, Jenji has constantly raised the bar for storytelling at Netflix,” said Cindy Holland, VP of original content at Netflix. “She possesses a rare and special talent to say what’s unspoken, choose the unexpected over the safe and drive the cultural conversation—and audiences love her for it. She has been with us from the beginning and we could not be more thrilled to continue working together over the coming years.”

Kohan, who also exec produces Netflix’s GLOW, will produce new original series and other projects for the streaming giant. Orange Is the New Black remains one of the platform’s most popular signature series. Said Kohan, “Current climate aside, it’s great to be in bed with Netflix.”
