Jordan Peele Signs Five Year Exclusive Deal with Universal Pictures
Jordan Peele, with his company Monkeypaw Productions, has just signed a five-year exclusive production partnership deal with Universal Pictures. 

Universal Filmed Entertainment Group chairman Donna Langley said, "Jordan has established himself as a premier voice and original storyteller with global appeal. He is leading a new generation of filmmakers that have found a way to tap into the cultural zeitgeist with groundbreaking content that resonates with audiences of all backgrounds. Universal Filmed Entertainment Group chairman Donna Langley said Tuesday. "We also share an important goal with Monkeypaw when it comes to increasing representation on-screen in the characters that are portrayed, the stories that are told, and the people who tell them."

Peele also commented about the news saying, "It would not have been possible to make Get Out and Us without the endless trust and support we received from Donna Langley and the team at Universal. Their willingness to take risks and their commitment to original content makes them the perfect collaborative partner for Monkeypaw. I couldn't be more excited for what lies ahead."

Peele's films "Get Out" and "Us" were box office successes, each earning over $255 million worldwide.
