About Shawn Levy/21 Laps While Levy is best known as a director of hit comedies and family tentpoles, whose films have grossed more than $3 billion worldwide, his production company 21 Laps Entertainment has emerged in recent years as one of the most prolific and eclectic in the industry, with a slate of film and TV projects encompassing multiple genres and collaborating with the most renowned filmmakers. Following the pact with Orange Is the New Black and G.L.O.W.'s Jenji Kohan, the Internet network has inked an exclusive multi-year pact with Shawn Levy, executive producer of Netflix's biggest series, Stranger Things.

Levy directs and exec produces 1980s-set drama Stranger Things, which was recently renewed for a third season, alongside 21 Laps' Dan Cohen as well as Iain Paterson (House of Cards) and creators Matt and Ross Duffer.

Cindy Holland, VP of original content at Netflix, labelled Levy and 21 Laps "courageous and adept storytellers who lean into risk both narratively and by nurturing great young talent".
