Netflix’s VP of Original Content, Cindy Holland said, “The genius casting of Timothy and Drew combined with Victor’s unique comedic sensibility will delight, and definitely surprise, our members around the world.”
Barrymore isn’t the first big star to work on a Netflix original production. Drew’s former co-star Adam Sandler, who she worked with on three hit comedy movies, has also made the move over to Netflix. The 49-year-old, Happy Gilmore star plays a leading role in the upcoming Netflix original movie The Do-Over. The movie, which will only be available on Netflix, will make its debut on May 27.
Kevin Spacey also signed a lucrative deal with the streaming company, starring in mega-hit series House of Cards. The American drama series follows the mind tricks and political games employed by Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) and Claire Underwood (Robin Wright) to obtain power in Washington DC. The show has been a huge success for Netflix and is now in its fifth season.
