Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Partners Sets Deal With Netflix

Amblin Partners has signed a partnership with Netflix that will allow Steven Spielberg’s company to produce multiple films for the streamer each year with no restrictions regarding budget or genre.

Amblin, who previously worked with Netflix on The Trial of the Chicago 7, sees this deal as a way to increase its film slate, since they already have a deal with Universal Pictures around theatrical releases.

In a statement, Amblin Partners Chairman, Steven Spielberg, commented: “At Amblin, storytelling will forever be at the center of everything we do, and from the minute Ted and I started discussing a partnership, it was abundantly clear that we had an amazing opportunity to tell new stories together and reach audiences in new ways. This new avenue for our films, alongside the stories we continue to tell with our longtime family at Universal and our other partners, will be incredibly fulfilling for me personally since we get to embark on it together with Ted, and I can’t wait to get started with him, Scott, and the entire Netflix team.” 

Ted Sarandos, Netflix Co-CEO and Chief Content Officer, commented:  “Steven is a creative visionary and leader and, like so many others around the world, my growing up was shaped by his memorable characters and stories that have been enduring, inspiring and awakening. We cannot wait to get to work with the Amblin team and we are honored and thrilled to be part of this chapter of Steven’s cinematic history.
