Netflix Plans to Launch “Late-night” Talk Show in 2016


Comedian Chelsea Handler has signed on to headline a late-night talk show for Netflix, which is currently slated to launch in 2016. While it is not clear how (e.g., what frequency) the show will get distributed (e.g., weekly, multiple times per week, or in weekly groups), Netflix has stated that it will deviate from the current “binge” seasonal viewing common with its other original programming. Topical and time-sensitive content is the primary reason for the change in distribution timeline, but it also brings fresh content in a more predictable and, more importantly, extended fashion. While it has not been explicitly stated, such a show could also serve as a doorway into live content, bringing Netflix that much closer to becoming a premium network.
