(AP) Queen Latifah's production company, Flavor Unit Entertainment, has signed a deal with Netflix.


The entertainer announced Tuesday that the multiyear deal gives the streaming service first look at titles from her production company. It starts this spring.


Latifah launched Flavor Unit in New Jersey with Shakim Compere. It's now based in Miami. The company has produced films such as Bringing Down the House and Just Wright, both starring Latifah. It also produced the HBO film Life Support, which earned a Golden Globe Award for Latifah.


Latifah said in a statement that Netflix is a strong brand and the perfect place to showcase our projects.


Flavor Unit is also producing the upcoming Terrence Howard thriller House of Bodies and Percentage, starring Ving Rhames and Macy Gray.
