Netflix inks deal with Warner Bros.

Pact covers eight shows, including 'Revolution'

Netflix said Monday that a new licensing deal with Warner Bros. Television Group will give it complete previous seasons of serialized dramas including J.J. Abrams’ “Revolution,” “Political Animals,” “Longmire” and “666 Park Avenue,” as well as “The Following,” which stars Kevin Bacon and premieres on Fox later this month.

Other skeins include “Chuck,” “Fringe” and “The West Wing.”

The agreement covers a current slate of eight Warner Bros. skeins and potential future shows. The series can also be made available via traditional syndication windows, electronic sell-through services and on a catch-up basis for recently aired episodes.

“This unprecedented agreement brings to Netflix members earlier and more exclusively than ever before complete previous seasons of some of the most prominent and successful shows on network and cable television,” said Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos.

“Through deals like this, Netflix is making the production economics right for the continued creation of the kind of compelling serialized dramas and thrillers that our members love.”

Bruce Rosenblum, prexy of Warner Bros. Television Group, said SVOD “has become an important window for our serialized dramas, allowing viewers a chance to discover a series that before might have been intimidating to tune into mid-run. We continue to adapt our business models to include SVOD when it makes sense for the long-term value of each show.”
