Kohan will make Netflix her creative home and produce new original series and projects. She has already been key to creating some Netflix’s biggest original hits.
“Bold, outspoken and totally fearless, Jenji has constantly raised the bar for storytelling at Netflix,” said Cindy Holland, VP of original content at Netflix.
“She possesses a rare and special talent to say what’s unspoken, choose the unexpected over the safe and drive the cultural conversation – and audiences love her for it. She has been with us from the beginning and we could not be more thrilled to continue working together over the coming years.”
The news is a boon for SVOD service Netflix, which this month cut ties with another major contributor to its original programming strategy, Kevin Spacey, after allegations of sexual misconduct surfaced.
Kohan said: “Current climate aside, it’s great to be in bed with Netflix.”
