Netflix in Talks to Distribute Original Series
Perhaps it’s just me, but this came as a bit of a shock. Apparently, Netflix is looking to start distributing original content. Talk about going for the gold! “So, Hollywood, you want to keep me from content? I’ll just go ahead and make my own then!”
The discussions for the series—a political drama called “House of Cards” based on a British miniseries—is part of a growing behind-the-scenes push by Netflix to secure from Hollywood production companies more original shows that will run initially on Net flix’s streaming Internet service, according to a person familiar with Netflix’s plans.
