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

13 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, »

Amazon's new test pilots take flight

15 hours ago | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Not so long ago, reality TV promised us that anyone could be a famous singer,

or chef, or alligator wrestler, or Amish craftsman. Now it’s not enough to be onscreen talent: We want to be development execs, too.

We have that chance with Amazon presenting its third round of pilots, which can be found on Amazon Instant Video. Viewers can watch, rate, and review the five new shows, and their feedback will help the streaming site decide which pilots to pick up as original series. (Last time around it ordered six series, including Chris Carter’s The After and Jill Soloway’s Transparent. »

Defiance Season 2 Finale Recap: Raiders of the Lost Ark-Brain

3 hours ago | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

On the off chance that Syfy’s Defiance is not picked up for a third season, fans of the series should at least feel a greater sense of closure than, say, poor Longmire viewers.

Because the Season 2 finale that aired on Thursday night did much heavy lifting across two episodes, ultimately leaving not too many balls (or, you know, symbolic pebbles) in the air.

Big Brother Recap: Same Old, Same Old

3 hours ago | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Well, here we are again, Big Brother fans.

Just two weeks ago, Donny and Nicole were sitting next to each other on the block, ensuring that one of this season’s sweet-as-pie contestants would be evicted. This time around, the set-up was exactly the same — only the results were different.

But before we get into Donny’s inevitable exit, let’s revisit this rather predictable week in the Bb house:

ABC Examines Medical Drama Project from ‘Smash’s’ David Marshall Grant

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

Hoping to continue its success with femme-focused shows like “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Revenge,” ABC has given a put-pilot order to a medical advocate drama project from actor-scribe David Marshall Grant.

The untitled one-hour drama, which hails from Vendetta Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television, follows a type-a business woman who is misdiagnosed after a medical scare. Having experienced first-hand the hazards of the American healthcare system, she shocks her friends and family by leaving her career behind to become a brilliant and relentless advocate for anyone caught in the chaotic and ever-changing maze that is modern medicine.

Grant (“Smash,” “Brothers and Sisters”) is exec producing with Vendetta’s Jennifer Klein and Sheldon Turner. Consulting producers are Dr. Valerie Ulene and Byrdie Lifson-Pompan, both principals at healthcare consulting and case management company Clear Health Advisors.

Top Moments: Jimmy Kimmel's Friendly Reunion and True Blood's Lifeless Finale

Our top moments of the week:

13. Best Response: In case you were living under a rock, or, you know, watching something else on TV Monday night, Gwen Stefani took a page from John Travolta's book and totally mispronounced Stephen Colbert's last name when she presented at the Emmys. Even though Colbert had already pre-taped his Tuesday show last week, the host still gets in a small jab at the much-discussed gaffe in the blink-and-you'll-miss-it opening credits, in which "Colbore" comes across the screen next to other descriptive words like "honorable," "star-spangled" and...
