Jennifer Lopez Signs Multi-Year Production Deal with Netflix




The 51-year-old musician and actress, Jennifer Lopez, and her production company, Nuyorican Productions, will be developing feature films and television series, plus scripted and unscripted content with the aim of supporting diverse talent. Lopez will be working with producing partners Benny Medina and the president of her company, Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas.

“I am excited to announce my new partnership with Netflix,” Lopez said in a news release. 

“Elaine, Benny and I believe there is no better home for us than a forward leaning content creation company that seeks to defy conventional wisdom and directly market to the millions across the globe who no longer view art and entertainment with the kind of boundaries and limitations of the past.”

Scott Stuber, Netflix head of global films, spoke on behalf of the streaming service and expressed excitement for the partnership. “Throughout every aspect of her career, Jennifer Lopez has been a force in entertainment. In partnering with her and Nuyorican we know she will continue to bring impactful stories, joy and inspiration to audiences around the world.”

“For years she and the team at Nuyorican have brought a distinctive voice to entertainment, and I’m looking forward to working with her and the team to create new series for our members to love,” Bajaria added.

Two Netflix features starring Lopez — “The Mother,” directed by Niki Caro (“Mulan”), and “The Cipher,” based on the novel of the same name by Isabella Maldonado — had been previously announced by Netflix.
