I’m not the only one who’s been surprised by Netflix’s new slate of shows.
In a new interview with Wired, the company’s vice president of content development, Michaela Ziegler, revealed that Netflix’s first slate of original programming was only the first of several new programming efforts that the streaming giant will make in the coming years.
Ziegling explained that Netflix is working on a slew of original series, documentaries, and feature films, and it’s aiming to release them by the end of the year.
“We have so much work to do,” she said, adding that Netflix will also continue to bring in original series and documentaries to its catalog.
“So, we’re trying to make the right decisions as we go along.”
Zieglen also said that Netflix intends to bring back some of the most popular movies and TV shows, such as Mad Max: Fury Road and American Gods, but the company will also be working on new programming that will be “more of a premium service.”
“We’re really working to make sure we get it right,” Ziegle said.
“And we’re not doing it for the money.
We’re doing it to get it done right.”
In addition to the original series that Netflix has announced for next year, Ziegl said that the company is planning to bring more than 100 movies to the streaming service.
Netflix is also planning to launch an original animated series, and the company said that it will also bring in several documentaries.
“There’s not enough films to go around,” Zielg said.
She also revealed that it’s working with a number of production companies to bring new movies to Netflix.
“If you want to make a feature, there’s a process of getting them on board and we’re going to be bringing in new projects every week,” she added.
Netflix recently unveiled a new slate featuring original programming from the likes of The Dark Knight Rises, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.
2, and Avengers: Infinity War, and Ziegly confirmed that there will be more content on the way.
“It’s going to include a lot more films and more documentaries, we think,” she noted.
“The goal is to bring as many films and documentaries into the service as possible, and then to do a series around that.”
