Shawn Levy and his production company 21 Laps Entertainment have created some huge hits for Netflix. As you may know, Levy and his production company are under an output deal for Netflix and has plenty of content coming up. Here’s an updated list of every project coming to Netflix that we know about from Shawn Levy and 21 Laps Entertainment.
Netflix works with a myriad of different creators under so-called output deals. That means the creators produce multiple titles for Netflix exclusively for the service and don’t have the ability to produce content for other studios. Ryan Murphy and Shonda Rhimes are perhaps the biggest two creators with these deals with both producing projects exclusively for the service.
