Netflix, 20th Century Fox TV Distribution announce first global agreement

MUMBAI: Global Internet TV network Netflix and 20th Century Fox Television Distribution have announced their first global SVOD licensing agreement.

Netflix will be the exclusive global streaming home for FX’s show ‘American Crime Story’.

The first season of the franchise will be available globally on Netflix, excluding Canada, in 2017 with all seasons made available after their respective broadcast windows.

The first season, ‘The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story’, concluded its 10-episode run on FX.

The first season of this limited series goes inside the O.J. Simpson trial and explores the chaotic, behind-the-scenes dealings and maneuvering on both sides of the court, and how a combination of prosecution overconfidence, defense shrewdness and the LAPD’s history with the city’s African-American community gave a jury what it needed: reasonable doubt.

The second season of ‘American Crime Story’ focusing on Hurricane Katrina will debut on FX next year.

“We’re excited to evolve our relationship with FOX and to bring their lauded content to our members around the world. Given the popularity of the first season of ‘American Crime Story’, we are thrilled to offer this acclaimed drama series to our members,” said VP global television Sean Carey.

“We’re extremely pleased to continue our relationship with Netflix on this groundbreaking deal We are very proud of the first installment of this franchise, ‘The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story’, which has received extraordinary critical acclaim and perfectly captured the cultural Zeitgeist,” said Twentieth Century Fox Television Distribution executive VP worldwide Pay TV and SVod Gina Brogi.
