Netflix pledges to diversify its programming

Netflix announced that it is on a mission to “be a force for good”, and plans on increasing the diversity of its programming.

The streaming giant has revealed a wide range of new programmes through new collaborations with Stormzy strategist Akua Agyemfra and Sex Education writer Bisha K Ali among others.

Netflix announced that British film-makers and writers will have their voices “amplified globally” by the streaming service.

Anne Mensah, Netflix’s vice-president of original series said to the Guardian that the deal with Agyemfra – brand director of Stormzy’s #Merky enterprise – involved “looking at projects and writers … making sure that we’re not always talking to the same people about the same things all the time to ensure we’re better reflecting the whole of the UK and what’s authentically modern British. That then feels like our way of talking to the world.”
