While it’s unclear if Karl will be in front of the camera or working behind the scenes, he’s said to be excited about the possibility of working with Netflix.
It comes after it was revealed that actor Chris Hemsworth had signed a four-movie deal with Netflix, which will inject millions of dollars into the Australian film industry.
Karl and Chris both share the same agent, Mark Morrissey.

Karl’s contract with Nine, which expires in late 2023, allows him to take on side projects, something Mr Morrissey is believed to have insisted upon.
The news comes just days after Karl stripped off on live TV for a lighthearted spray tan segment.

Checking himself out in the studio monitors, Karl snapped: ‘You messed this up, this is appalling!’
Daily Mail Australia has contacted Karl’s representatives for comment.
