    The CW's Dynasty to be distributed by Netflix outside U.S.

    ‘Dynasty’: Netflix To Distribute The CW Reboot Internationally Via Deal With CBS Studios Int’l

    Portions of the article which can be viewed in its entirety from the link below:

    In a pretty unique deal for a broadcast series, Netflix has acquired global rights to the CW’s upcoming reboot of Dynasty for all international territories outside of the U.S.

    Dynasty is produced by CBS TV Studios. The deal for the show between CBS Studios International and Netflix follows a similar pact between the two companies for another reboot of a series with global name recognition: Star Trek: Discovery. The sci-fi drama, which will run on CBS’ streaming service CBS All Access in the U.S., will have Netflix as its exclusive premiere home in 188 countries (excluding the U.S. and Canada), with each episode available globally within 24 hours of its U.S. premiere.

    ...Dynasty is expected to launch globally in the fall, premiering around the world on Oct. 11 simultaneously with its U.S. debut on the CW.

    In anticipation of the Netflix deal, the Dynasty pilot was not shown to international buyers at the L.A. Screenings last month. With its heavy serialization, the soapy drama is considered a great fit for international distribution on a streaming platform.
    The international deal compliments the domestic streaming pact Netflix has with the CW affiliated studios CBS TV Studios and Warner Bros. TV for library rights to all of the network’s scripted series, which also covers Dynasty.

    *********

    Just as I expected, none of the Canadian networks picked it up. In terms of The CW's new shows for 2017-18, Bell Media picked up midseason series Life Sentence for Bravo while Corus picked up the other fall newcomer Valor for W Network. That leaves only Black Lightning (another DC Comics-based series) without confirmation for broadcast and/or distribution in Canada. Netflix also picked up Insatiable, one of two shows that The CW had in development and was picked up to pilot but not ordered to series.

    CTV will be airing The Big Bang Theory on Mondays at 8:00pm in simulcast with CBS through late October, when it will move back to its regular Thursday 8:00pm timeslot.

    I had a feeling CTV had changed their Monday night schedule this year. Too bad because it's a conflict for me with Murdoch Mysteries. Not to mention Supergirl.

    Thanks for the info. :)
