Chris Rock signs $40M Netflix deal for 2 comedy specials

After an eight-year absence, Chris Rock is making his return to television as a stand-up comic. The multiple Emmy-winning comedian has signed a massive pact with streaming giant, Netflix for two stand-up specials.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Rock signed a whopping $40 million deal for the specials, which sets a new high mark for a stand-up comic. The $20 million per special is believed to be more than such A-list comedians as Louis C.K., Jerry Seinfeld and Amy Schumer have commanded.

The plan is for Rock to film two new specials that will make their worldwide debut. It's unclear when either that first show will air or when the second will tape and be rolled out.
