Under the terms of the deal, Hirsch will exclusively develop new animated series and features for Netflix.
Hirsch is a writer, director, producer, and author best known for creating and voicing Gravity Falls.
“I couldn’t be more excited to join the amazing roster of talent coming to Netflix,” said Hirsch. “Plus it couldn’t hurt to be on The Algorithm’s good side before The Singularity hits. Awesome things are coming!”
Cindy Holland, vice president of original content for Netflix, said: “Alex is an imaginative storyteller with new ideas who’s quickly developed a reputation as a fresh new voice in animation. We couldn’t be more excited to work with him as we continue expanding our adult animated slate.”
