The exclusive multi-year agreement will see Shawn Levy produce shows for Netflix through his prodco 21 Laps Entertainment, which has also appointed former ABC exec Josh Barry as president of television. Levy, the award-winning director and producer behind the blockbuster "Night at the Museum" franchise, last year's Oscar-nominated sci-fi movie "Arrival" and Netflix's hit TV series "Stranger Things", will be responsible for developing TV projects exclusively for the Scotts Valley, California-based company. He championed and served as executive producer for Stranger Things, which became a surprise hit for Netflix, despite the show's unconventional premise.

"Netflix did, and they bet big, and it's been truly thrilling to take this wild ride with such exceptional partners", Levy said. "They have an admirable track record for telling ambitious stories that have incredible heart and which resonate with audiences all over the world".
