Continuing its recently launched raid on Hollywood, Netflix has announced it will be the exclusive home of four feature films starring and produced by comic icon Adam Sandler
The deal looks like the latest result of Netflix’s internal analytics: Sandler is reportedly one of the few actors in the world whose films consistently rank among the most viewed by Netflix members across its global territories.
“People love Adam’s films on Netflix and often watch them again and again. His appeal spans across viewers of all ages – everybody has a favourite film, everyone has a favourite line – not just in the US but all over the world,” confirms Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos.
Under the deal, Sandler’s Happy Madison Productions will work alongside Netflix to develop the four films and to premiere them exclusively to members in the nearly 50 countries where Netflix operates. Current studio film commitments are not included in this deal.
