First a college degree, now a Netflix partnership.
Megan Thee Stallion has inked an exclusive first-look deal with Netflix to produce new series and other projects.
The partnership will see Meg — whose TV career includes a cameo in NBC’s crime comedy-drama Good Girls — create and executive produce content for the streaming giant, including TV series and other unspecified projects.
“I’ve always had a passion for telling creative and entertaining stories, so I’m thrilled about this partnership with Netflix,” Megan said in a statement. “Venturing into production is the next step in my journey as an entrepreneur and I can’t wait to bring all my ideas to life and for my Hotties to watch.”
While Netflix has previously partnered with a host of Hip Hop artists on films, series and documentaries, including Travis Scott, Killer Mike and Ludacris, Megan’s deal is the first of its kind the streaming company has announced with a rapper.
“Megan is a multi-talented creative force who has consistently made her mark on culture,” Tracey Pakosta, head of comedy at Netflix, added. “She’s always growing and evolving as an artist, and we’re thrilled that she’s making a home at Netflix for this next chapter in her journey.”
Netflix is just the latest high-profile brand to saddle up with Megan Thee Stallion this year. Nike partnered with Tina Snow in September for their “Play New” campaign, which saw the “Thot Shit” rapper assume the title of “Hot Girl Coach” to run a series of Nike Training Club workouts.
In October, Megan teamed up with famed Louisiana fast-food chicken chain Popeyes to launch her very own “Hottie Sauce.” She’s also racked up numerous awards in 2021, including three Grammys, while becoming the first rapper to grace the cover of Sports Illustrated.
