Warner Bros. expands Netflix deal

Library to includes 'Nip/Tuck,' 'Veronica Mars'

Warner Bros. has expanded its web streaming agreement with Netflix to include library TV titles, including all 100 episodes of FX drama “Nip/Tuck.”

Deal also extends the studio’s pact with Netflix for web streaming of selected film library titles through 2011.

Netflix will get “Nip/Tuck” segs for a four-year term in a shared window of MTV Networks’ cabler Logo. Warner Bros. had been in an uphill battle to seal a traditional off-net deal for “Nip/Tuck” because the program is so closely identified with FX and because it pushes the envelope on the content front. The shared window with Netflix and Logo was likely the studio’s best option for maximizing its backend coin on the series revolving around two plastic surgeons.

The streaming deal also covers such Warner Bros. TV-produced series as “Veronica Mars,” “Pushing Daisies” and “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles” — all of which have modest but fervent fan followings.

“Nip/Tuck,” which wrapped its six-season run on FX in March, will bow on Logo in October.

Deal was announced Thursday by Netflix veep Robert Kyncl, Warner Bros. Digital Distribution prexy Thomas Gewecke and Warner Bros. Domestic TV Distribution prexy Ken Werner.
