Netflix has signed multi-year deal with Alexander Woo which will see the Terror and Manhattan supremo develop, write and produce new drama and science fiction projects for the streaming service.
Woo was the creative force behind AMC’s The Terror: Infamy which explored a series of bizarre deaths that haunted a Japanese-American community in a WW2 internment camp.
He also wrote episodes of Manhattan, Sleeper Cell, LAX and Wonderfalls, and co-wrote HBO’s The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks.
“We admire Alexander Woo’s passion for innovative storytelling and creating characters and narratives that captivate and transcend genres. We’re excited to have him on board and look forward to seeing what his creative talents bring to the screen next,” said Peter Friedlander, Vice President, Original Series, Netflix.
Woo commented: “I love telling stories with an urgency and a reason for being, and can’t wait to tell those stories together with my new partners at Netflix. I’m also grateful to AMC for giving me the opportunity to do that with The Terror: Infamy.”
