I wrote a lengthy reply but had to pause before finishing. I lost it. {I have noticed this a few times recently. I sign in, type a lot but have to stop for a bit and when I come back I have the sign in page again, and no post. Ann-if you read this can you address if something has changed? I'll send a note later if you don't chime in here.}

Anyway, briefly now, I think this model presumes that Netflix or equivalent will buy every show, and in advance. Neither is likely to happen, so how does this pan out? What is the timeline you anticipate? I think the shows with big advances could get bought, but that leaves a lot of have nots in this model. I also think that ultimately this shifts content decisions from theatre people to Netflix people. I think you will agree that there are shows that will not translate to film well for one reason or another, and a lot of shows that are going to have to capitalize for filming on spec, when they already have trouble capitalizing just to get up and running.

I have more thoughts but losing the screen kinda took the wind out of my sails for the time being. I hear what you are saying and I agree about a lot in the middle of your post and I think searching for new models is great but I just don't see this and I don't think there is a bandwagon that a lot of experienced producers have hopped on, and not because they are closed to trying new things.
