Creative Artists Agency agent Peter Micelli, speaking during a media event at UCLA, says the streaming company is creating shows for at least $3.8 million per episode, with some going well above.
Micelli: "The cheapest show is $3.8 million an episode ... 'House of Cards' started at $4.5 million and (executive producer David) Fincher took it way above that. The next series is 'Hemlock Grove' and they're doing that for about $4 million an episode ... 'Orange is the New Black' is just under $4 million as well. They're huge budgets shows, doing things in a huge way."
By contrast, average broadcast shows rarely go above $4 million per episode.
