October 27, 2023

Media entrepreneur and filmmaker Tyler Perry has signed a deal with Netflix to write, direct, and produce eight new movies for the streaming service, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

This follows a previous agreement with Amazon for four feature films.

While specific plot details are currently unavailable, the collaboration with Netflix marks another significant milestone in Perry’s prolific career.

Tyler Perry’s association with Netflix has already led to several projects, including the upcoming film “Six Triple Eight,” which is based on the remarkable true story of an all-Black, all-female World War II battalion pivotal to the American war effort. The movie boasts an impressive cast that includes Kerry Washington, Oprah Winfrey, and Susan Sarandon.

Perry is also set to release “Mea Culpa,” starring Kelly Rowland and Trevante Rhodes, centered around a criminal defense attorney handling a potentially high-profile case.

Both “Six Triple Eight” and “Mea Culpa” are currently in post-production, according to IMDb.

Perry announced a deal with Amazon back in 2022. Through that deal, he was set to write, direct and produce four feature films to be released on Prime Video. With that deal being nonexclusive, it does not affect his Netflix deal.

His remaining films for Amazon include Black, White, and Blue, Divorce in the Black, and the upcoming bio-documentary Maxine’s Baby: The Tyler Perry Story, which is focused on Perry’s life story.
