The Haunting Duo Mike Flanagan And Trevor Macy Depart Netflix For New Deal With Amazon
Horror maestro Mike Flanagan and his producing partner Trevor Macy have been somewhat synonymous with Netflix for the last six years. Their presence has been a dream come true for horror fans, but unfortunately, it was announced on December 1st that Flanagan and Macy are saying farewell to the streaming giant.
The duo have signed an exclusive multi-year overall series deal with Amazon Studios and will develop and produce new projects through their Intrepid Pictures company. This, of course, means that all of the new projects will be streamed exclusively on Prime Video.
Losing a recognizable figure like Mike Flanagan is a massive loss for the platform, and they're going to need to find a replacement, fast. Netflix’s loss is definitely Amazon Studios’ gain as their head of global television stated to Deadline, "We are excited to welcome them to Amazon Studios and are looking forward to our global customers experiencing their
genre-bending creativity."
