Netflix expands deal with “Bridgerton” producer Shonda Rhimes

Shonda Rhimes has a new Bridgerton deal with Netflix. The deal, which is actually an expansion of the one Netflix has with the television producer, will add feature films, gaming and live events to its pact with her company.

According to Metro, Netflix said the deal with Rhimes and her Shondaland Media company would give the streaming platform the opportunity to “exclusively produce, stream and distribute feature films as well as potential gaming and virtual reality content.”

“The pact currently includes a branding and merchandise deal for Shondaland Media content, which will now add live events and experiences,” the company said in a statement.

“Bridgerton,” a modern twist on Jane Austen-style historical romance, was a huge hit for Netflix and three more seasons have already been ordered.
