Jennifer Lopez’s Nuyorican Productions signs first-look deal with Netflix

Jennifer Lopez’s Nuyorican Productions has signed a multi-year first-look deal with Netflix.  As part of the deal, Nuyorican will produce both film and television offerings, scripted and unscripted. Lopez, along with producing partner Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas, will aim to work on projects that look to support diverse female actors, writers and filmmakers. Business partner Benny Medina will also act as a producer.

Said Lopez: “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.”

Netflix’s head of global films, Scott Stuber, in a statement:  “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.”
