Another good excuse to binge-watcher on Netflix. Contrary to what the latest information shows, Jennifer Lopez is only Ben Affleck’s found girlfriend. She is above all an ultra prolific artist, singer and actress, and a proven businesswoman. And the last multi-year contract that Nuyorican Productions, the company she co-manages with Benny Medina, signed with the giant Netflix, confirms this once again. The purpose of this agreement? A plethora of feature films, TV series and scripted content, but that’s not all. Each of the projects supported will feature female directors, screenwriters and actresses. Indeed, the feminist commitment of the superstar is no longer in doubt today because it is distilled in all the projects she undertakes – what about her all-white outfit, worn during the inauguration ceremony of Joe Biden, in a nod to the struggle of the suffragettes.

“A powerhouse of entertainment”
“In all aspects of her career, Jennifer Lopez has been an entertainment force. By partnering with her and Nuyorican, we know she will continue to bring life-changing stories, joy and inspiration to audiences around the world, ”said Scott Stuber, Netflix Head of International Films. , according to « Deadline ». And this collaboration is already fruitful: the films “The Mother” by Niki Caro (“Mulan”) and “The Cipher”, adapted from the eponymous novel by Isabel Ojeda Maldonado, are on the rails. The first follows the adventures of a killer mother, played by J.Lo herself, who comes out of her hideout to come to the aid of her daughter, abandoned years before. Likewise, “The Cipher” centers on a special FBI agent who finds herself embroiled in a serial murder case, after strategically uploading complex puzzles. “I am delighted to announce my new partnership with Netflix (…) There is no better place for our forward-looking society, which seeks to challenge conventional wisdom and speak directly to millions of people in the world and who no longer consider art and entertainment with the limits imposed in the past (…) We are impatient to get to work now, ”said Jennifer Lopez, according to the tabloid « Variety ».
With 70 million albums sold, notable roles (“Never again” or “Love at first sight in Manhattan”) and a first co-produced film with resounding success (“Hustlers”), Jennifer Lopez definitely proves that nothing is ever too big.
