Netflix and Flavor Unit Entertainment, the production company owned by Queen Latifah and Shakim Compere, today announced an exclusive licensing agreement for movies in the U.S.
In the first-look deal, Netflix will have its pick of Flavor Unit movies that will debut on its subscription service shortly after their theatrical releases.
Beginning in Spring 2013, Netflix members will be able to exclusively watch Flavor Unit titles including the thriller, House of Bodies, starring Terrence Howard and Peter Fonda, as well as Percentage starring Ving Rhames, Cam’ron and Macy Gray.
“We are delighted to work with Queen Latifah to be the exclusive destination for what are sure to be relevant, entertaining movies,” said Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer of Netflix. “Queen Latifah has a long track record of creating hits and Flavor Unit Entertainment is a fresh and exciting voice in the industry.”
“Shakim and I are thrilled to do business with Netflix. Netflix is such a strong brand and the perfect place to showcase our projects,” said Queen Latifah.
