“I’ve always had a passion for telling creative and entertaining stories, so I’m thrilled about this partnership with Netflix,” Thee Houston Hottie said in a press statement. “Venturing into production is the next step in my journey as an entrepreneur and I can’t wait to bring all my ideas to life and for my Hotties to watch.”
According to The Hollywood Reporter, under the first-look deal; Megan will create and executive produce a new series and be involved in other Netflix projects. Neither the streaming company nor the Good News rapper has revealed what her first series will entail, but Deadline reports that “signs point” to the project being a comedy.
Megan previously appeared on HBO Max’s reality competition series, “Legendary” as a judge and guest-starred on the NBC show, “Good Girls.” She was also featured on Sarah Cooper’s Netflix comedy special and made her “Saturday Night Live” debut last year.
“Megan is a multi-talented creative force who has consistently made her mark on culture,” Tracey Pakosta, head of comedy at Netflix, added in the statement. “She’s always growing and evolving as an artist and we’re thrilled that she’s making a home at Netflix for this next chapter in her journey.”
It’s been a busy week for the 26-year-old as she just graduated from Texas Southern University on Saturday (Dec. 11). As reported by REVOLT, Megan said she still plans to open assisted living facilities in Houston after earning her degree in health administration.
“I’m still going to open up these assisted living facilities and I definitely want to hire new college graduates,” she told Rolling Stone earlier this week. “Nobody ever wants to hire you fresh out of college. They feel like you have no experience, so I want to create a place where you can get experience.”
