Netflix has bet on yet another shining star since inking a first-look deal with talented actress Regina King. The Oscar-winning star and her production company Royal Ties will produce series and films for the platform over the course of several years.
“Regina King is a multi-faceted talent both behind and in front of the camera.

Regina won an Emmy for her role in Netflix’s Seven Sevens and she scored a Grammy for her role in If Beale Street Could Talk. “I am beyond thrilled to join the Netflix family,” Regina said of her deal. “They are at the top of their game and as an artist I am so excited to come play in this wonderful sandbox they have created for storytellers.”
Regina previously spoke about her career, detailing how every role has come at the right time, thanks to the universe.
“I’ve been acting for thirty-plus years and the reality is — and I hope everyone feels like this about who’s lucky enough to have their career be something that they love — that you’re growing,” she said. “I feel like I’m growing as an actor as these roles are coming. They’re coming at the time that I’m prepared for them; the universe has prepared me for them, so I’m just riding it. I’m listening to the universe, and I’m riding love all the way.
