Gotham coming to Netflix in ‘unprecedented deal’

Netflix will become the exclusive subscription video on demand (SVOD) home of the highly anticipated Warner Bros series Gotham.

Premiering on 22nd September on Fox in the United States, the series draws on the story of Batman’s origins, taking place in Gotham City as young Detective (and future Commissioner) James Gordon and the recently orphaned Bruce Wayne meet in the troubled days before the arrival of the Dark Knight. Each season of the series will be available to Netflix members following linear broadcast beginning in 2015.

“In this era of new business models and expanding windows, this is an unprecedented deal for our company and our industry,” said Jeffrey R. Schlesinger, President, Warner Bros. Worldwide Television Distribution.  “While we typically license our programming country by country, we have licensed this very special series to Netflix on a multi-territory basis. Netflix is a perfect home for Gotham following its initial broadcast in each respective country, giving Netflix subscribers the opportunity to catch-up prior to the new season, whether they’re already fans or discovering it for the first time.”
