My bet: Jericho
talks are serious (it would make sense for CBS to team with Netflix) but the Speilberg shows (Terra Nova
and The River
) were BS all along. And Pan Am
will never happen - doesn't make sense.
The plausible cases are where Netflix has data about the rental rates for an existing show that indicate it makes sense for them, and if the show is not particularly expensive to produce.
I'm surprised nobody's talking about picking up Secret Circle.
People talk about picking up every cancelled show imaginable whenever these kinds of stories hit.
