“Russell’s genius is his uncanny gift to identify the idiosyncratic within all of us,” says Lisa Nishimura, VP of Originals, Netflix. “He is prolific, fresh and a global force that will resonate with our members around the world.”
“I’ve always prided myself on being outside the box and slightly ahead of the curve, which is why Netflix is the perfect fit for me,” says Peters. “Plus, the web took my career to a whole other level – we both owe a lot to the Internet.”
“Notorious” will hold a screening at the upcoming Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) on September 9. The comedy performance was filmed live at the Allphones Arena in Sydney, Australia on March 15, 2013.
