Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) is launching a daily talk show with Chelsea Handler which is going to be streamed in 2016 to all regions the company has subscribers. Why, however, did Handler choose Netflix over any other network she could have negotiated with?
It turns out that Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX), according to Handler in an interview with Re/code’s Kara Swisher which was posted here by CNBC, is great at working together with talent to produce a new show.
“Netflix is so exciting for me for a bevy of reasons [among them] the way that they conduct themselves and the way they get behind a project – the way that they are involved. They are super involved in everything that I do and the thought process,” Handler tells Swisher.
According to the television veteran who saw her nightly show on E! end last year, she has always been very interested in Silicon Valley. Now, she’s working with Netflix even though she admits she does not know streaming very deeply.
In fact, she tells Swisher that one of her concerns about doing a nightly show for Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) was how they were going to do it if they were streaming. Nonetheless, it appears that this has been explained to her by the company.
It is important to note that the comedienne has not exactly been coy about her unhappiness at E! She has went on interviews in the past implying that E! is like a guy who she is ashamed to be seen out and about with. At the recent Code Conference, she said being with Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) is “like going out with a guy that you’re proud to be seen with”.
Meanwhile, Handler is also praising her new employer for changing the media landscape. She tells Swisher that because of firms like Netflix, there is more opportunity for everybody which is why everybody wants to be on television now, something, she says, wasn’t true 20 years ago.
By the end of the last quarter of 2014, Carl Icahn’s Icahn Capital LP owned about 1.41 million Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX).
