Netflix Gets First-Run Rights to The CW’s ‘The 100’ in Canada via Warner Bros. Pact

Netflix subscribers in Canada will be able to watch The CW’s “The 100” sci-fi series within one day of its U.S. air, through an exclusive first-run licensing deal with Warner Bros. Intl. TV Distribution.

The 100” will be available to Netflix customers in the Great White North starting Thursday, March 20, following the U.S. broadcast on CW (Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET).

“We know that Canadians love thrilling sci-fi and adventure titles, so ‘The 100’ is a great addition to our Canadian service,” said Sean Carey, vice president of content acquisition for Netflix. “As a first-run exclusive series, this is the kind of exciting and high-quality, multi-genre content we will continue to bring to our members.”

Added Jeffrey Schlesinger, president of Warner Bros. Worldwide TV Distribution, “‘The 100’ is a terrific series, and we believe Netflix will provide a great platform, allowing fans to start from the beginning at the time of their choosing.”

Show is produced by Bonanza Productions in association with Alloy Entertainment, Warner Bros. Television and CBS Television Studios. “The 100” is set a century after Earth has been devastated by a nuclear apocalypse, and the remaining humans left alive have taken refuge in 12 international space stations that were in orbit at the time. Three generations later, 4,000 survivors are running out of resources on their dying “Ark.”

“The 100” stars Eliza Taylor, Paige Turco, Thomas McDonell, Canada native Marie Avgeropoulos, Bob Morley, Christopher Larkin, Devon Bostick with Isaiah Washington and Henry Ian Cusick. Elizabeth Craft, Sarah Fain, Jason Rothenberg, Leslie Morgenstein and Gina Girolamo are exec producers of the series, which was developed by Rothenberg and is based on the book by Kass Morgan.
