Ted Sarandos, the strategist behind the original content of the Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) told in an interview with the Hollywood reporter that the viewers will get to watch the much awaited fourth season of the Arrested Development, which is one of the most liked original series from Netflix.
Ted Sarandos opened about many things like what would be the future strategy of the company and what the viewers and others should expect from it.
On being asked about the Phase 2 of the original content strategy, Sarandos said, “it’s feasible that we would double the load that we did this year.”
Future Plans For NetFlix
He said that in the year 2013, there are around 5 shows which will be aired and the company is expecting to earn profits in double digits from these original contents in the next year. However, he made no mention on what would be these five upcoming shows and what would be there content.
However, Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) had a clear plan as to what kind of shows will be shown and according to Sarandos, Netflix is looking forward to making series, which are “adult contemporary sci-fi“, as well as the “tween” horror much like the CW network shows.
Sarandos said that the company is looking forward to continue its series Arrested Development. He said “We would love to do more, and we have a deal in place that says that there could be.”
Sarandos also addressed the rumours about the spending on per episode of its original series. Peter Micelli, who is a Creative Artists Agency lawyer, said in March that on every episode of House of Cards around $4.5 million are spent. Sarandos said that this was very much exaggerated figure and is highly blown out of proportion, and he does not want to make any effort in clarifying this. He said that it is true that this is a costly business, but it is a business, which is worth it to be in.
Sarandos Ways of doing things
Ted Sarandos is very clear when it comes to his strategies. Sarandos knows what he wants and does not crave to be the favourite of Hollywood. He has not done things as per the traditional rules of the Industry but has gone the other way round by making his shows online at once and not following the established development process. The chief content officer of Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) has also showed his unwillingness in producing the rating information.
He also told that he has no regret for the decisions he made, and neither he wants to make any changes in his agenda.
