She becomes the latest big-name talent to ink a lucrative deal with Netflix, joining the likes of Ryan Murphy, Shonda Rhimes, and Kenya Barris.
In addition to her blockbuster Wonder Woman, Jenkins has logged serious credentials on the big and small screens, with work ranging from Breaking Bad to Arrested Development.
Jenkins, who helmed the pilot and finale episodes of the Netflix drama The Killing, starring Wonder Woman‘s Chris Pine, is currently in post-production on Wonder Woman 1984, which she directed, produced and co-wrote. The film is set to arrive in 2020. Pine and Jenkins also recently collaborated on the well-received limited TNT drama series I Am The Night, which centered on the grisly, still-unsolved Black Dahlia murder in Los Angeles in 1947.
