Add Marti Noxon to the rapidly growing list of showrunners who have signed with Netflix.

The Sharp Objects and Dietland alum has signed a multiyear overall deal with the streaming giant. Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that the pact is for four years and will see the Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Glee alum take home eight figures per year.

The deal is exclusive for television, with Netflix also having a first-look option on feature projects from Noxon. The agreement extends Noxon's relationship with Netflix, for whom she wrote and made her feature directorial debut with the film To the Bone, which bowed at Sundance in 2017.

Noxon's Tiny Pyro banner will move its operations to Netflix from its previous home at Skydance TV, where the company had been based since inking an overall deal there in 2016. Tiny Pyro president Maria Grasso will move with the company to Netflix.

"Who can resist the allure of Netflix?” Noxon said Monday in a statement. “Not only do they continually produce ground-breaking and visually stunning content, they've developed a platform that's so influential it's become a verb. I Netflix at home, happily, and now I'm even more excited to Netflix for a living."

Noxon's credits include HBO's recent Amy Adams vehicle Sharp Objects, AMC's short-lived Dietland and Lifetime-turned Hulu's Peabody winner UnREAL, as well as writing credits on Buffy, Mad Men, Glee and Grey's Anatomy.

At Netflix, Noxon joins an increasingly impressive roster of showrunners including Shonda Rhimes, Ryan Murphy, Kenya Barris and Jenji Kohan (Noxon's sister-in-law), among others.

"Marti Noxon is a brilliant and visionary creator who explores emotional depths to reveal the inner lives and struggles of complex, modern women,” said Netflix vp originals Cindy Holland. “Her work is often both brave and vulnerable, with a distinct voice, sense of humor and tone that is uniquely her own.”

Noxon is repped by WME and Hansen Jacobson.
