Netflix original programming costs at least $3.8 million per episode
Netflix has (kind of) confirmed that its original programming is quite expensive.

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.

    Originally posted by Arjun00: excellent watch - has become a favorite quickly I see it's an American remake of the English "House of Cards" I saw starring Ian Richardson... I thought it sounded familiar. Isn't it a bit patronising to Americans to change Francis Urquhart to Francis Underwood... like they can't say "Urquhart"?

    Still, I like Spacey and he should be absolutely great as the pure evil protagonist in the American take.

    Its a lot easier being righteous than right.
