Netflix has signed a multi-year production commitment overall deal with animation studio Titmouse to produce multiple original adult animated series. Under the terms of the deal, Netflix will also have a first look at adult animated series developed and created at Titmouse.
This marks an expansion of the relationship between the two companies, which have partnered on several adult animated series, including Emmy nominated Big Mouth (pictured) from Brutus Pink and upcoming series The Midnight Gospel from Adventure Time creator Pendleton Ward and Duncan Trussell.
“When Netflix asked if we wanted to go steady, we were thrilled. When we asked if it could be an open relationship, they said, ‘Yeah, of course. It’s the 21st century, kid. That’s the only way we’ll have it.’ Now we are friends with benefits and I couldn’t be more stoked,” quipped Chris Prynoski, Titmouse president and founder. “This new and exciting relationship will help quench our relentless thirst for producing animated cartoons. Excuse me, I’m gonna go carve NF+TM on a tree now.”
“Titmouse has been at the forefront of the evolving animation industry and is the creative force behind an impressive variety of projects, including our very own Big Mouth and The Midnight Gospel,” added Mike Moon, Head of adult animation for Netflix. “We’re thrilled to expand our collaboration with Chris, Shannon, and the entire team at Titmouse as we continue to develop and produce bold original animation together.”
