Tyler Perry signs multiyear deal with Netflix


One of the biggest names in Hollywood has officially joined forces with one of the biggest names in streaming. Tyler Perry has signed a first-look deal with Netflix.

The partnership is described as a multiyear agreement that would have the writer, producer, director and entertainment mogul behind the Madea movies creating content for the platform.

Perry was already in business with Netflix: His Tyler Perry Studios is backing 2024’s based-on-real-life WWII ensemble drama Six Triple Eight, with Kerry Washington leading an all-star cast. He also has lined up the legal drama Mea Culpa starring Kelly Rowland with the streamer.

Tyler released 2020’s A Fall from Grace, and 2022’s A Jazzman’s Blues and A Madea Homecoming via Netflix.

Incidentally, the documentary about his life, Maxine’s Baby: The Tyler Perry Story, is bound for another streaming service, Prime Video, on November 17.
