Netflix has entered into an overall deal with Chris Nee, the creator of the popular children’s show “Doc McStuffins”, to create exclusive content for Netflix. The deal will see Nee write and produce new animated and live action series for preschool and all audiences exclusively for Netflix and Netflix will get first-look on any feature film projects from Nee and her production company, Laughing Wild.
Chris is an absolute master at crafting characters that kids want to spend time with and telling stories that are representative of all different types of families and communities. She is among the very best and most prolific artists working in kids content today and we are so honored that Chris has chosen to make Netflix her creative home.

The beauty of Netflix is that they don’t define me by what I’ve done in the past, but by who they think I can be in the future. I love that they don’t believe in boxes but rather encourage creators to dream big and swing for the fences creatively. Just as important is my ability to define the culture of my company and double-down on finding and nurturing new and diverse voices. My mission is to create work that reflects the world we live in and lend a voice to the storytellers who haven’t always had access. I can’t wait to get started.
