Coming in on the heels of his 2022 four-movie signing with Amazon Studios, Tyler Perry has struck a new, multi-year first-look deal with Netflix. He will write, direct, and produce features for the streamer, and after working with Netflix extensively in recent years, audiences can look forward to his upcoming films, Six Triple Eight and Mea Culpa.
With executive producer Kerry Washington on board, who also leads the starry ensemble, Six Triple Eight highlights the inspiring true story of the first and only Women’s Army Corp unit of color to be stationed overseas during World War II. Kelly Rowland and Trevante Rhodes star in Mea Culpa, a film about a criminal defense attorney who takes on the case of an artist who may or may not have murdered his girlfriend.
Perry’s past films for Netflix include recent Humanitas Prize winner A Jazzman’s Blues, a tale of forbidden love with a Toronto world premiere; A Madea Homecoming, the 12th installment of the billion-dollar Madea franchise; and the thriller A Fall from Grace starring Crystal Fox.
We look forward to further storytelling and collaboration with another world-leading streaming platform.
