Netflix Interested in Buffy, Twin Peaks, and Even The Dark Tower?
Netflix is enjoying high viewership for its original series "Hemlock Grove" and "House of Cards," so much so that they're looking to continue on with original programming on a grand scale by possibly resurrecting some gone too soon titles and more.
In an interview with Stuff.TV, Netflix's Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos was asked what other properties he'd like to see make a comeback via the service. It was recently announced that "Arrested Development" would be getting a new season via the service, and here's where things get interesting... It's no secret that "Arrested Development" creator Ron Howard has also been circling Stephen King’s "The Dark Tower" so is there any chance Netflix could pick it up? Sarandos teased, "I spoke to Ron about it, actually. The last time we talked about it, the thing was being kicked about HBO – but it’s no longer there. Once 'Arrested Development' gets through, we’ll keep talking about it."
Pertaining to "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," Sarandos said, "That’s one that’ll come up on everyone’s list. She’s a great character. If it was my property, I’d do infrequent movies. There’s not enough kick-ass female characters like that." He added a resounding "Absolutely!" when asked about the potential resurrection of "Twin Peaks."
Interesting stuff, kids!
