Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins has signed a multi-year overall TV deal to make series for Netflix that runs for three years and is worth around $10m.
Jenkins became the first woman ever to direct a $100m-plus live-action feature when she steered Wonder Woman in 2017. She is currently in post-production on sequel Wonder Woman 1984, which she co-wrote, produces and directs.
In TV she has directed episodes of Entourage and The Killing and was an executive producer and director on this year’s TNT mini-series I Am The Night.
Netflix vice-president of original series Channing Dungey said: “We’re thrilled to welcome Patty Jenkins to Netflix. Her trailblazing work has pushed boundaries and she confidently tells stories that leave an unforgettable mark. We look forward to fostering her many ideas and helping them come to life.”
Added Jenkins: “I’m so excited to embark on a great journey of making the new world of television with a company and group of people I admire as much as Ted, Cindy, Channing, Peter and the team at Netflix. I look forward to digging in to some great work together soon.”
