What Is A Netflix Original Series?
Netflix has been celebrated for being the first online video-on-demand provider to produce its own original content. Seeing others mimicking their service, the company decided to stand out from the crowd by having its own range of television shows and movies. These can only be viewed on Netflix, but often get released on home entertainment platforms like Blu Ray and DVD many months later.
The first original programming produced by Netflix was House Of Cards. The show is a political drama created by The Ides Of March writer Beau Willimon starring Kevin Spacey as a congressman who was passed over for Secretary Of State and assumes a plan to get into power. Robin Wright, Corey Stoll and Kate Mara star in supporting roles. The show’s pilot episode was directed by The Social Network and Zodiac filmmaker David Fincher. The show was the first on-demand only series to have been nominated at the Emmys with nods for Outstanding Drama Series, Lead Actor In A Drama Series and Directing For A Drama Series.
Other examples of Netflix’s original content include the prison set dark comedy Orange Is The New Black and horror series Hemlock Grove. The business has also agreed to continue popular shows that were cancelled by other networks such as The Killing and Arrested Development.

More About Netflix
Netflix was founded in 1997 in California by Reed Hastings who remains the company’s Chief Executive Officer. A former maths teacher who found financial success when he sold his Pure Software package for $700 million, he came up with the idea when he was forced to pay $40 in overdue fines for a copy of Apollo 13. He launched Netflix in 1998 with a pay per rent service, with the monthly subscription idea launching the following year in 1999.
The business continued to grow, by 2005 there was 35,000 titles available and by 2007 the company had delivered its billionth DVD, before introducing the video on-demand service. This year, it announced that it had 23.6 million subscribers in the United States. In 2011, Netflix launched in the UK and reached the million subscriber milestone here a year later.
It now produces its own content as well as stocking a library of well-known titles. These include the Golden Globe winning House Of Cards and the Academy Award nominated documentary The Square.
February 27th 2014
Netflix have bought the rights to stream The Lady In Number 6: Music Saved My Life, a short documentary about the Holocaust survivor and pianist Alice Herz-Sommer who passed away last week at the age of 110.
The 38 minute film will be available to Netflix users as of April 1st and is nominated for an Academy Award in the category of Best Documentary – Short Subject. It’s also the favourite among several bookies to win on the night.
The film tells the story of Alice Herz-Sommer who was born in Prague. She was a celebrated pianist who was sent to a concentration camp in the Czech city of Terezin along with her husband and her son. Inmates were allowed to stage concerts there are she frequently starred. 33,000 Jews died at the camp but she and her son stayed alive. The joy of making music is what she believes kept them going.
The film is directed by Malcolm Clarke who won an Oscar for Best Documentary – Short Subject back in 1988 with his film You Don’t Have To Die. It was a story about a young boy’s successful battle against cancer and how he subsequently helped many other children deal with the illness.
January 3rd 2014
Users waking up on New Year’s Day found many of their favourite Netflix movies missing from the library. They removed 85 titles in a new year purge because licensing contracts with movie studios had expired or they simply were not being watched by enough customers.
Titles removed from Netflix movies include Spike Jonze’s cult classic Being John Malkovich about a man who finds a portal into John Malkovich’s head, the low budget high school detective story Brick that propelled actor Joseph Gordon Levitt to success, and James Cameron’s multi Oscar winner Titanic with Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet. However, Netflix claim that more movies will be added throughout January to compensate for these losses.
The company apparently spends around $2.5 billion a year on generating content for the digital streaming library. AMC’s acclaimed drama Mad Men about the rise and fall of an advertising executive in the 1960s allegedly costs Netflix $750,000 an episode.
It’s unlikely that the brief lapse in Netflix movies will affect the service’s success in 2014. They are coming off the back off an incredibly strong year that saw them premiere US drama Breaking Bad, broadcast the popular original series Orange Is The New Black and win several awards for their political drama House Of Cards whose second series arrives in February.
December 30th 2013
There have been so big names attached to Netflix’s original series House Of Cards: Acclaimed director David Fincher, Oscar winning actor Kevin Spacey and Golden Globe nominee Robin Wright. But the political drama might be set to feature its most popular cast member to date: President Barack Obama.
Netflix boss Reed Hastings is reported to have asked the President Of The United States Of America to make a cameo in the show during a meeting between the top technology executives. The exchange came after Barack Obama asked Hastings if he could receive an advanced copy of the show’s second series, due to be aired in February 2014. Hastings joked that he’d comply if Obama made a cameo.
The show is created by Beau Willimon, whose play Farragut North was adapted for the screen by George Clooney as The Ides Of March. It tells the story of a Democratic House Majority Whip who plays Washington to exact his revenge on those who passed him up for Secretary Of State.
Barack Obama was a fan of House Of Cards’ first season, praising Kevin Spacey’s character in particular. “I wish things were that ruthlessly efficient,” he told reporters in Washington.
The series was the first original series to be produced by Netflix and was met with enormous success scoring several Emmy and Golden Globe nominations. Since, Netflix have created other shows like Orange Is The New Black and Turbo Fast.
Netflix is a service available to subscribers in the UK to stream movies and television through their TVs, consoles and tablets.
December 19th 2013
Netflix have announced that they will be streaming Better Call Saul, the spin-off of the popular, award winning series Breaking Bad, next year.
It will be available to users in the UK, Europe, America and Latin America as soon as the series has finished airing on the US cable channel AMC. AMC will be producing the show as they did with Breaking Bad.
Better Call Saul is a prequel to the immensely popular story about an Albuquerque chemistry teacher Walter White who begins cooking meth in an attempt to leave a legacy for his family (and even himself) when he’s diagnosed with cancer.
Breaking Bad won the Emmy’s Best Drama award this year for its final season and is considered by many to be the greatest TV show ever made.
This prequel will follow Walter White’s ethically dubious lawyer Saul Goodman, a fan favourite in the show for his darkly humorous comic relief. Saul is played by actor and comedian Bob Odenkirk who is known for his work on Saturday Night Live and the 2013 drama Nebraska.
Breaking Bad was streamed by Netflix UK to enormous success, becoming the service’s most watched item in 2013. It became available at 9am each Monday throughout August and September, the morning after it was shown on AMC in the US.
Netflix have begun to take on the TV kings with acquisitions like Breaking Bad as well as cooking up original programming such as House Of Cards and Orange Is The New Black. It’s likely that Better Call Saul will be another stepping stone towards their domination.
