Netflix Signs Multi-Year Deal With ‘Unorthodox’ Creator Anna Winger
Anna Winger, the creator of the Netflix series ‘Unorthodox‘, has signed a multi-year deal with the streamer.
According to Deadline, the deal also encompasses Winger’s company, Airlift Productions. The agreement will see them produce several international dramas from the streamer.
“Berlin is a crossroads for international artists. As an American living and working here, far from Hollywood, my work is deeply rooted in local conversations,” said Winger.
“I founded Airlift as an umbrella for resulting collaborations and am thrilled that Netflix provides us with such a direct connection to the global audience. The partnership is an opportunity to build on our Unorthodox experience, bringing ambitious projects to life.”
“We are very excited about our new partnership with Anna,” said Rachel Eggebeen – Netflix‘s Director of Original Series. “Having witnessed her magic whilst collaborating on Unorthodox, we’re already aware of her unique talent for turning stories into thrilling global hits.
“The combination of Anna’s creative vision and our ambitions for our growing European drama offering align perfectly,” added Eggebeen. “We’re looking forward to working with Anna and the team at Airlift Productions to bring their series to our members in Germany and around the world.”
The first series to come from the new partnership will reportedly be Transatlantic. The drama is inspired by Julie Orringer’s book, The Flight Portfolio, and is set during the refugee crisis in 1940 Marseille, France.
Winger is also working on a contemporary series set in the English countryside.
