Peter Morgan has inked an overall deal with Netflix.
The creator of The Crown has made a name for himself with his polished recreations of historical events, including Frost/Nixon, The Queen and The Last King of Scotland. Netflix’s royal drama, though, has become his crowning achievement, bagging awards acclaim as well as audience affection and having the potential to run for many seasons to come – work on Season 4 is already underway.
While that returns for Season 3 this November, Netflix and Morgan are already looking ahead to the future, inking a multi-year overall deal to keep the writer in-house.
The agreement will see him create and develop TV series and feature films for Netflix.
He joins a growing roster of talents with overall deals at the streamer, including Shonda Rhimes, Ryan Murphy, Kenya Barris, Jenji Kohan and the Obamas.
