Netflix has signed a multi-year overall deal with animation creator Alex Hirsch, creator of the Annie and BAFTA award-winning series, Gravity Falls, under which Hirsch will exclusively develop new series and features for Netflix.
“I couldn’t be more excited to join the amazing roster of talent coming to Netflix”, said Hirsch.
“Plus it couldn’t hurt to be on The Algorithm’s good side before The Singularity hits. Awesome things are coming!”
“Alex is an imaginative storyteller with new ideas who’s quickly developed a reputation as a fresh new voice in animation,” said Cindy Holland, Vice President of Original Content for Netflix.
“We couldn’t be more excited to work with him as we continue expanding our adult animated slate.”
