Netflix to Enter Original Programming

Nellie Andreeva, for Deadline Hollywood:

In what is probably the biggest gamble in its 14-year history, I hear Netflix has outbid several major cable networks, including HBO and AMC, for Media Rights Capital’s drama series House of Cards, executive produced and directed by David Fincher and exec produced by and starring Kevin Spacey.

Genius move, if they can pull it off.

And, if they do, when does Apple start doing the same thing? Imagine a hit show that’s only available through iTunes.
