Netflix and animation studio Titmouse are taking things to the next level. Tho two companies agreed this week on a multi-year deal to produce original animated content aimed at adults, and agreed to give Netflix the first chance at streaming any other series developed and created at Titmouse.
This isn’t their first time working together, as the two paired before on several series, including the popular Big Mouth and The Midnight Gospel.
Chris Prynoski, the president and founder of Titmouse, said he was “thrilled” to work with Netflix. “When we asked if it could be an open relationship,” he joked, “they said, ‘Yeah, of course. It’s the 21st century, kid. That’s the only way we’ll have it.’ Now we are friends with benefits and I couldn’t be more stoked. This new and exciting relationship will help quench our relentless thirst for producing animated cartoons. Excuse me, I’m gonna go carve NF+TM on a tree now.”
If you’re not familiar with Titmouse, they’re the studio behind hits like Venture Bros., Tigtone, Big Mouth, Black Dynamite, Superjail!, and Metalocalypse.
Mike Moon, Netflix’s head of adult animation, called Titmouse a company “at the forefront of the evolving animation industry and is the creative force behind an impressive variety of projects. We’re thrilled to expand our collaboration with Chris, Shannon, and the entire team at Titmouse as we continue to develop and produce bold original animation together.”
