At the L.A. Screenings in May, one of the most recognizable new series titles, the CW’s Dynasty reboot, was not shown to international buyers who had flown in from around the world to survey the new product coming out of the Hollywood TV studios. That is because the series already had been earmarked for Netflix, which had taken global rights outside of U.S. and Canada. Dynasty, from CBS TV Studios, was the third CW series to go to Netflix internationally, joining Warner Bros. TV’s Riverdale and Black Lightning. This past summer, Netflix also made the first international distribution deal for a Big 4 series, picking up NBC/Universal TV’s midseason drama-comedy Good Girls.

It is part of a new model for the streaming behemoth, which has the company collaborating with big U.S. studios on series that air on other linear or digital networks in the U.S. In addition to the four broadcast dramas, also part of the initiative are CBS All Access/CBS Studios’ Star Trek: Discovery as well as several series from Universal Cable Prods., USA’s Shooter, Damnation, The Sinner and the upcoming Unsolved: The Murders of Tupac and The Notorious B.I.G., as well as Syfy’s Nightflyers, which was originally picked up to a pilot but is expected to get a straight-to-series order with Netflix on board.

Additionally, Netflix has such an arrangement for AMC/Sony TV’s Better Call Saul, which airs internationally on Netflix a day after the episodes’ U.S. premiere. Netflix boarded the series as a streaming partner early in its run in 2013 following the blockbuster Netflix success of Saul‘s predecessor Breaking Bad. The model also applies to international series, including the BBC2/Carnival Films’ The Last Kingdom.
