Reportedly, Chelsea Handler has etched a deal to bring a late-night talk show to Netflix. Netflix has, of course, made moves to change the way people consume entertainment with original productions like ‘House Of Cards’ and ‘Orange Is The New Black.’ This move is, clearly, just the next step.
Ted Sarandos, Netflix Chief Content Officer, said:
The Internet has disrupted many of the conventions of traditional television, and together with Chelsea Handler, Netflix is looking forward to reimagining the late-night talk show for the on-demand generation, starting with the late-night part.
I dig this move. As I have mentioned before, Chelsea is interesting, Chelsea is funny, and I like Chelsea. I also like Netflix, and I have a Netflix account, which I enjoy. Therefore, I like all of this. This is all positive, I am excited, and I believe it will succeed.
Good job, Netflix. Nice play.
