Netflix and 20th Century Fox Television strike a new deal that will make Netflix the exclusive global streaming home for FX’s hit, “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 22-time Emmy® nominated first season, “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story” concluded its 10-episode run as cable’s most-watched new series of 2016.
“We’re excited to evolve our relationship with FOX and to bring their lauded content to our members around the world,” said Sean Carey, vice president of global television. “Given the popularity of the first season of “American Crime Story,” we are thrilled to offer this acclaimed drama series to our members.”
“We’re extremely pleased to continue our relationship with Netflix on this groundbreaking deal,” said Gina Brogi, EVP Worldwide Pay TV and SVOD, 20th Century Fox Television Distribution. “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.”
This is likely just the start of what will be an ongoing relationship between Netflix and 20th Century Fox Television.
