Marti Noxon has inked an overall deal with Netflix.
The prolific Emmy-nominated writer, producer and director has hundreds of hours of television under her belt, helping to create shows that are honest, raw, and timely. Noxon’s career has been continually defined by distinct and powerful female-driven content that features nuanced characters and challenges societal tropes. She has been a part of some of the most beloved series of the past two decades, including Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Mad Men, Glee, and Grey’s Anatomy, and has most recently been creator-showrunner are on Sharp Objects and Dietland, as well as the first season of UnREAL.
Noxon is no stranger to Netflix, though: her feature directorial debut To the Bone – which premiered in competition at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival – was snapped up by the streaming giant. Now, she is expanding that relationship with the streaming giant by forging a new, multi-year deal. Under the agreement, Noxon will produce new series programming exclusively for Netflix. Additionally, Netflix will have a first-look option on Noxon’s feature projects. Noxon will continue to produce all projects through her production company, Tiny Pyro. Maria Grasso will make the move to Netflix, as well, continuing in her role as President of Tiny Pyro.
“Marti Noxon is a brilliant and visionary creator who explores emotional depths to reveal the inner lives and struggles of complex, modern women,” says Cindy Holland, Vice President, Original Content at Netflix. “Her work is often both brave and vulnerable, with a distinct voice, sense of humor and tone that is uniquely her own.”
“Who can resist the allure of Netflix?” adds Noxon. “Not only do they continually produce ground-breaking and visually stunning content, they’ve developed a platform that’s so influential its become a verb. I Netflix at home, happily, and now I’m even more excited to Netflix for a living.”
