Netflix breaks records to bag hit NBC series ‘The Blacklist’

According to an exclusive report in Deadline, Netflix has acquired the rights to NBC drama The Blacklist in a deal set to secure a remarkable $2 million for every single episode of the hit US series for Sony Pictures TV.

The figure looks like a record-breaker, and the largest amount paid by any OTT service for an episode.

“Season 1 of the series starring James Spader will debut on the streaming service next weekend,” reports Deadline’s Nellie Andreeva. “As for future seasons, Netflix usually makes them available shortly after the season finales.”
