Justina looks like she's trying so hard not to cry. 

 

This news is what it feels like to be a P&G soap fan. That sums it up for me.

 

An especially poignant statement to make on today, of all days. 

 

I wonder whether Netflix's restrictive contracts will impact their status of being near the top of the list for creatives.  I'm sure the money has a lot of appeal but for those who regard themselves as unwavering artists...well, artists value freedom.  I know that this has changed the way that I see Netflix a vehicle for creative works.

Well, I also read that CBS itself offered to buy As The World Turns but P&G refused.  I could never understand P&G's attitude.  It wasn't like they feared competition for other shows, they were the veritable 'dogs in the manger'.  

 

Well, they're struggling internally so maybe they should've taken that network money for their shows.  (*shrugs*)

Thanks. That must have been the other one.

 

And yeah I forgot about the day. 

 

Anyway, sorry for threadjacking.

DEADLINE: What is the status of One Day at a Time?

 

FROST: We are in heavy discussions with a number of different linear networks. It’s more challenging with a linear platform, especially when you don’t have the digital rights even in the downstream, because we don’t. Those rights do come back to us in a few years, so that’s all in play. I feel reasonably confident that we will find another home for it. There are some very interested buyers; the one you wrote about (CBS All Access) was extremely interested and now can’t proceed because there is the restriction that says the show can’t go to another digital player. But there are some other buyers who are very interested.

 

CLODFELTER: Broadcast has voiced a lot of interest, we’ve talked to all four broadcast networks. However, they are focused on their pilots right now; we want to wait and see where those pilots land.

 

DEADLINE: Are you able to wait?

 

FROST: Given our actor options, we’re able to do that, yes. We have them through October.

 

CLODFELTER: I think the great thing about the show is you don’t have to have seen the previous seasons. The family, the chemistry between them all speaks for itself, so you can slightly pivot for any respective buyer, and it’s the right team in place on every level.

 

PARNELL: And the one thing we’re experiencing with all these networks is, there’s great passion for this content. They love it. It was 100 percent on Rotten Tomatoes the last two seasons, they all know that, and a lot of the networks we’re talking to see a great opportunity here. The audience built from season two to season three, it almost doubled from season two to season three based upon the data that we have, and so networks are very excited about that possibility.

I agree, but just how big is that fanbase? I adore the show and keep waiting every day to see it was picked up somewhere. Broadcast seems a stretch to me, personally. But I'd love it. I just don't know if there's this fight over it some think :/

If CBS AA wanted it, there's a good shot. I still don't believe Netflix won't buckle on that since the pressure is now publicly on them.

 

It's pretty damning on them, personally, that they won't release it to be able to go somewhere else (of course it can go to broadcast and cable). I've had a bad taste for Netflix for a while now, personally. They still have some great content, but ehhh ... lol

 

I don't see them buckling but they should. CBSAA *really* wanted it and it would have been a really good get for them. I can't see it on primetime broadcast. I wish I could. I'd be beyond thrilled. (I guess I only can't because it's not the norm at all for streaming to move to broadcast, it's usually broadcast/cable moving to streaming, so this would likely be a first, no?)

 

I think Netflix has discovered half hour multi-cam sitcoms aren't being binged enough for them, they have a certain formula that works for them. I have no doubt the viewership is there. And I have no doubts they can afford the show ...

 

It does give them a bad look (Netflix was "everyone's savior!!!!!") But they probably hope it blows over as everyone gushes over their latest big name project.
