Mumbai will soon become home to Netflix’s first wholly-owned, full-service, post-production facility serving the streaming company’s global production of live-action films and series.
The facility will be fully operational by June 2022 and have 40 offline editing suites. These are being designed as flexible, collaborative and inspiring environments for showrunners, directors, editors and sound designers. They are expected to result in advanced media management workflows.
Netflix launched in India in 2016 and has been steadily increasing its output of homegrown original films and series. It invested $410 million over 2019 and 2020 on local programming and unveiled a 40-strong India slate across multiple genres in March.
Mumbai is home to the Hindi-language industry Bollywood and is where Netflix’s Indian operations are also based. It is is increasingly becoming a pole for Netflix’s international operations.
