Netflix Signs First Look Deal with Dark Horse Entertainment – Home of “The Umbrella Academy”

Netflix has signed a first look deal with Dark Horse Entertainment for both TV and film based on the comic creator’s intellectual property. The two have previously collaborated on the action-comedy series “The Umbrella Academy” as well as Jonas Åkerlund’s feature film “Polar” and the streaming giant has already started exploring future projects.

With The Umbrella Academy and Polar, Netflix has pushed our content out into the world and allowed it to spread in a way that we’ve never experienced before, and we couldn’t be more excited to bring a whole new slate of movies and shows to their world-wide audience
 – Keith Goldberg, Senior Vice President, Dark Horse Entertainment


Following the success of The Umbrella Academy, we’re excited to extend our relationship with Dark Horse Comics. The Netflix teams are already working in deep collaboration with Dark Horse to identify projects beyond the world of traditional superheroes – branching into horror, fantasy and family entertainment – that we think our members will love.
 – Cindy Holland, Vice President, Original Content for Netflix
