Netflix Nabs ‘How to Get Away with Murder’ Season 1 Rights Worldwide

Netflix has secured worldwide rights to the first season of the ABC sophomore drama “How to Get Away with Murder,” the streaming service announced Friday.

Episodes will be available in the U.S., Canada and Latin America on Sept. 18, with all other territories where Netflix is available to follow in the coming months.

“This agreement to make our season one episodes available underscores the value of this series, and reinforces the overall popularity of ‘How To Get Away With Murder’ on ABC and its other first-run platforms around the world,” said Janice Marinelli, president, Disney-ABC Home Entertainment and Television Distribution.

“We’re excited to offer global audiences season one of ‘How To Get Away With Murder,’ offering members a chance to discover it for the first time or relive the drama of season one before the new season’s premiere,” said Sean Carey, VP of global TV at Netflix.

Letting viewers binge on “Murder” before the fall season about to begin could help drive audiences to a second season, which bows on ABC in the U.S. on Sept. 24. As the highest rated new series on the network last season, ABC will be looking to pull out all the stops to take “Murder” to the next level.

“How to Get Away with Murder” is created and executive-produced by Pete Nowalk (“Scandal,” “Grey’s Anatomy”). Shonda Rhimes (“Scandal,” “Grey’s Anatomy”), Betsy Beers (“Scandal,” “Grey’s Anatomy”) and Bill D’Elia (“Grey’s Anatomy,” “The West Wing”) also serve as executive producers.
