Netflix and Amblin Partners, the global film and television studio led by Steven Spielberg, have announced a partnership that will cover multiple new feature films per year. The pact does not affect Spielberg’s long-term relationship with Comcast’s Universal Pictures, where Amblin Partners is based.

Amblin Partners' recent track record of critical and commercial hits includes Oscar Best Picture winner “Green Book,” and “1917,” which won three Oscars, two Golden Globes and grossed more than $385 million at the worldwide box office. The two companies previously worked together on the Academy Award-nominated “The Trial of the Chicago 7,” and are currently collaborating on Bradley Cooper’s Leonard Bernstein film, “Maestro,” which is in pre-production.

“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 and the entire Netflix team,"  commented Steven Spielberg, Chairman of Amblin Partners.

Ted Sarandos, Co-CEO and Chief Content Officer of Netflix, added: “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”.
