Netflix has formed a first-look deal with Berlanti/Schechter Films, a production company founded by Emmy and Golden Globe nominated writer, director, and producer Greg Berlanti and his producing partner Sarah Schechter. Berlanti has previously worked with Netflix as executive producer for “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” and “You” and started out “Dawsons Creek”. For films he has worked on “Love, Simon”, the acclaimed “Unpregnant” and the upcoming “Free Guy”, “My Policeman” and “Moonshot”.
Schechter produced Rachel Lee Goldenberg’s Unpregnant, Shawn Levy’s soon to be released “Free Guy” starring Ryan Reynolds and Jodie Comer, Michael Grandage’s “My Policeman” starring Harry Styles and Emma Corrin, Chris Winterbauer’s “Moonshot” starring Lana Condor and Cole Sprouse, as well as upcoming films from filmmakers Jennifer Kent, Greg Berlanti, among others.
We love telling stories and over the last few years we have had an incredible time telling them with Ted, Bela and everyone at Netflix on the tv side and we couldn’t be more excited to be getting a chance to begin our relationship with Scott and his team on the film side. We have been so impressed by the home for filmmakers Scott and everyone there has built (this is a literal coming home for Sarah since she and the amazing Kira Goldberg were once roommates). We cannot wait to roll up our sleeves and get to work making a broad range of emotional, entertaining and impactful stories for the massive global audience that Netflix has.
