Netflix Nabs Rights to Stream Hit NBC Drama ‘The Blacklist’

6 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Netflix confirmed Thursday that it has acquired the rights to NBC’s hot first-year drama “The Blacklist,” from Sony Pictures TV.

The deal is reportedly worth about $2 million per episode, though Netflix would not confirm the price. This would make it the most expensive off-network series picked up by Netflix, eclipsing the roughly $1.35 million that it shelled out for AMC’s “The Walking Dead.”

The CBS dramas “Hawaii Five-0″ and “NCIS: Los Angeles” garnered cable syndication license fees of more than $2 million, but the Netflix deal is believed to be the biggest subscription video-on-demand deal.

“Blacklist,” a procedural that includes a key serialized storyline, was a breakout hit for NBC last fall and finished as the season’s No. 1 new program. It was the most time-shifted program last season, according to Nielsen, which may have made it especially attractive to Netflix.

The network gave it a big vote of confidence in May, »

USA maintained its status as basic cable’s top summer network in key demos, but TNT emerged as the clear scripted leader — getting a boost from hot newcomer “The Last Ship.”

According to Nielsen preliminary “most current” summer estimates from May 26-Aug. 24, TNT could claim four of basic cable’s top 20 original series in adults 18-49 (“The Last Ship,” “Rizzoli & Isles,” “Falling Skies” and “Major Crimes”) — more than any other network and twice as many as it had last year. Bravo, Discovery, MTV and VH1 all had two apiece.
