NETFLIX MAKES OVERALL DEAL WITH MARTI NOXON
Hollywood, Calif. - November 12, 2018 -- Netflix has entered into a multi-year overall deal with prolific Emmy-nominated writer, producer and director Marti Noxon. Under the deal, Noxon will produce new series programming exclusively for Netflix. Additionally, Netflix will have a first-look option on Noxon's feature projects through the pact, as well. Noxon will continue to produce all projects through her production company, Tiny Pyro. Maria Grasso will make the move to Netflix, as well, continuing in her role as President of Tiny Pyro.
With hundreds of hours of television under her belt, Noxon has built her career on storytelling that is honest, raw, and timely. While each project is vastly different from one another, Noxon's work as a creator has continually connected with audiences through distinct and powerful female-driven content that features nuanced characters and challenges societal tropes. Among her most recent projects as creator-showrunner are the critically acclaimed series Sharp Objects and Dietland, as well as the Peabody Award-winning first season of UnREAL. Over the course of her impressive career, Noxon has been a part of some of the most beloved series of the past two decades, including Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Mad Men, Glee, and Grey's Anatomy, to name a few. Additionally, on the film side, Noxon wrote and made her feature directorial debut with the powerful Netflix original film To The Bone, which premiered in competition at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival.
"Marti Noxon is a brilliant and visionary creator who explores emotional depths to reveal the inner lives and struggles of complex, modern women," said Cindy Holland, Vice President, Original Content at Netflix. "Her work is often both brave and vulnerable, with a distinct voice, sense of humor and tone that is uniquely her own."
"Who can resist the allure of Netflix?" said Noxon. "Not only do they continually produce ground-breaking and visually stunning content, they've developed a platform that's so influential its become a verb. I Netflix at home, happily, and now I'm even more excited to Netflix for a living."
