Of course, to conclude from this that Netflix is just rolling in dough and can't wait to pay it out to producers would be misleading as well - 100 million to Fincher is 100 million that's not available to spend on stuff like Terra Nova. Choices have to be made.
Sure, but I was responding to the notion that there's no way Netflix can afford a show like Terra Nova
. That's not the case. Plus they wouldn't be on the hook for the whole budget. They'd pay a license fee for the North American rights and Fox TV would cover the rest of the budget through overseas sales and ancillary markets. Even so, Netflix may well pass on picking up Terra Nova
