Good story at Variety about the new app Netflix is developing to modernize production management.
As I said last week:
I’m sure that Netflix believes that Rhimes and Murphy are going create hit shows for their subscribers, otherwise Netflix wouldn’t have paid such a premium. But Netflix also knows that Rhimes and Murphy are going to establish experienced producing teams that will generate a ton of production data for Netflix to study. Data that will completely accessible now that these shows are being produced in house. Data that will allow Netflix to learn how to apply efficiencies and create hit shows from the ground up at cost.
