Director Peter Berg has signed a deal with Netflix for new live-action movies and TV shows. This is a “first-look” deal, which means Netflix gets first right of refusal for new projects.
As part of the deal, Berg will direct and produce these new projects, whatever they turn out to be, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
It’s no surprise that Netflix made a deal with Berg, as his Netflix movie Spenser Confidential starring Mark Wahlberg was among the most successful original movies for Netflix in history, with 85 million views over its first four weeks, according to Netflix’s accounting. Berg’s production company Film 44 is included with the new Netflix deal.
