Netflix has entered into a multi-year exclusive overall deal with international bestselling author Harlan Coben. As part of the deal, Netflix will work with Coben to develop 14 existing titles and future projects, including his upcoming novel Run Away, into English language and foreign language series, as well as films, to premiere on Netflix around the world. Coben will serve as an executive producer on all projects.
Harlan Coben, the perennial #1 New York Times bestselling author of thirty novels, has sold over 75 million books and his work has been translated into 43 languages around the world. He currently has two crime drama series on Netflix — Safe, starring Michael C. Hall, which premiered earlier this year and the 2015 French series No Second Chance.
“Harlan’s page-turning crime novels are beloved by readers around the world,” said Erik Barmack, Vice President of International Originals for Netflix. “We are excited to continue our partnership with him and develop his suspenseful thrillers into global Netflix originals.”
“I loved working with the Netflix team on Safe, and seeing the fantastic audience response around the world,” says Coben. “I’m thrilled to continue our relationship to create more original films and series with them on a global scale.”
