Netflix has signed a deal with Dark Horse to produce streaming content based on Dark Horse properties.

Netflix tweeted news of the arrangement, described as a "first look" deal. No details of what shows or movies could be in development were included in the announcement.

In 2015, Dark Horse signed a similar 'overall' deal with Universal Cable Productions (a subsidiary of NBCUniversal). As part of that, UCP negotiated Netflix's acquisition of Umbrella Academy as a TV series, and also pitched adaptations of Concrete and Harrow County.

It's unclear which of Dark Horse's properties this would include, as some notable ones such as Mike Mignola's Hellboy/B.P.R.D. titles are creator-owned.
