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.
