Leo partners with Netflix for documentary projects

Netflix will team with the actor and his production company to produce a full-length documentary and a docu-series focusing on the environment and conservation.

Actor Leonardo DiCaprio is the latest high-profile name to partner with Netflix Inc, as he and his production company Appian Way will produce a documentary and a series that will premiere exclusively on the digital streaming service, the company said on Wednesday.

DiCaprio, who worked with Netflix NFLX -1.79% on the Oscar-nominated documentary “Virunga” about the Democratic Republic of Congo’s rare mountain gorillas, will act as a producer or executive producer for the projects that will focus on the environment and conservation.

“This partnership is a natural extension of our incredible relationship with Leo on ‘Virunga,’” Ted Sarandos, Netflix’s chief content officer, said in a statement.
