DLA Piper represented Titmouse in the transaction.
Titmouse, the award-winning animation studio behind hit comedy “Big Mouth,” entered into an agreement with Netflix to produce multiple original adult animated series.
Under the deal, Netflix will have a first-look option on all adult animated series created and developed by the company. The multi-year deal strengthens Netflix’s position in the adult animation genre. Netflix launched its own in-house animation studio in 2018 in a bid to better monetize what can be hugely lucrative programming.
Titmouse was founded in 2000 and has offices in Los Angeles, New York and Vancouver. It features a staff of 700 writers, producers, directors, storyboard artists, animators, composers, editors and artists. The studio’s credits include Adult Swim hits like “The Venture Bros.” and Disney XD’s “Motorcity,” among others.
The DLA Piper team representing Titmouse included Tom Ara (Picture), co-chair of DLA Piper’s Entertainment Transactions and Entertainment Finance practices, David Markman and Katherine Imp (both of Los Angeles).
