Netflix is already doing it with “Arrested Development”, could they now be giving the same treatment to another cancelled Fox show?
Deadline reports that the video streaming giant and 20th Century Fox TV have been in talks about keeping the just cancelled pre-historic drama “Terra Nova” alive which would premiere exclusively on Netflix. However “conversations are preliminary and it is unclear if they will materialize into a negotiation”.
‘Nova’ was a Top 10 DVR gainer show, the series’ 18-49 rating growing on average 44% in Live+7 vs. Live+Same day ratings.
20th Century Fox TV is also keen to keep the show alive as it is a big international seller. The big question is making a big-budget show like this work financially, especially without a lucrative broadcast network license fee.
