Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) has signed a multi-year deal with television writer-producers, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, the names behind HBO’s popular show Game of Thrones
Netflix NFLX has signed a multi-year deal with television writer-producers, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, the names behind HBO’s popular show Game of Thrones. Per MarketWatch report, the deal, worth $200 million, will see the creators coming up with movies and series exclusively for the streaming giant.
Notably, the duo has also signed a contract with Disney DIS to write and produce a Star Wars movie trilogy, the first of which is scheduled to release in 2022.
The collaboration with Benioff and Weiss is expected to provide an impetus to Netflix’s original content expansion strategy, which has been its key catalyst. Previously, the company signed similar contracts with Ryan Murphy ($300 million deal) and Shonda Rhimes ($100 million deal) to produce original content.
These additions are expected to help Netflix maintain its dominant market share in the streaming space, which is becoming increasingly competitive due to the entrance of Disney+, Apple TV+ and others.
Netflix’s focus on expanding its original content portfolio, as indicated by the recent hiring, is a major growth driver. We believe its expanding content portfolio is likely to aid subscriber retention in the near term. Moreover, content strength, particularly regional, will boost its international user base.
