    Disney's Marvel and Netflix Join Forces to Develop Historic Four Series Epic plus a Mini-Series Event Based on Renowned Marvel Characters

    Landmark Deal Brings Marvel’s Flawed Heroes of Hell’s Kitchen, led by "Daredevil," to the World’s Leading Internet TV Network in 2015

    Burbank, Calif. - Nov 7, 2013—The Walt Disney Co. (NYSE: DIS) and Netflix Inc. (NASDAQ: NFLX) today announced an unprecedented deal for Marvel TV to bring multiple original series of live-action adventures of four of Marvel's most popular characters exclusively to the world's leading Internet TV Network beginning in 2015. This pioneering agreement calls for Marvel to develop four serialized programs leading to a mini-series programming event.


    Led by a series focused on "Daredevil," followed by "Jessica Jones," "Iron Fist" and "Luke Cage," the epic will unfold over multiple years of original programming, taking Netflix members deep into the gritty world of heroes and villains of Hell's Kitchen, New York. Netflix has committed to a minimum of four, thirteen episodes series and a culminating Marvel's "The Defenders" mini-series event that reimagines a dream team of self-sacrificing, heroic characters.


    Produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Television Studios, this groundbreaking deal is Marvel’s most ambitious foray yet into live-action TV storytelling.


    "This deal is unparalleled in its scope and size, and reinforces our commitment to deliver Marvel's brand, content and characters across all platforms of storytelling. Netflix offers an incredible platform for the kind of rich storytelling that is Marvel’s specialty," said Alan Fine, President of Marvel Entertainment. "This serialized epic expands the narrative possibilities of on-demand television and gives fans the flexibility to immerse themselves how and when they want in what's sure to be a thrilling and engaging adventure."


    "Marvel’s movies, such as 'Iron Man' and 'Marvel’s The Avengers,' are huge favorites on our service around the world. Like Disney, Marvel is a known and loved brand that travels," said Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos. "With 'House of Cards' and our other original series, we have pioneered new approaches to storytelling and to global distribution and we're thrilled to be working with Disney and Marvel to take our brand of television to new levels with a creative project of this magnitude."

    This new original TV deal follows last year's landmark movie distribution deal through which, beginning with 2016 theatrically released feature films, Netflix will be the exclusive U.S. subscription television service for first-run, live-action and animated movies from the Walt Disney Studios, including titles from Disney, Walt Disney Animation Studios, Pixar Animation Studios, Marvel Studios, Disneynature and Lucasfilm. Netflix members can currently enjoy a wide range of Disney, ABC TV and Disney Channel films and shows across the 41 countries where Netflix operates.

    This is going to be amazing!!! All four of those characters have history together. Hopefully this will cross over with Agents of SHIELD.

    I would love to watch it but I don't have Netflix anymore and I don't plan on having it any time soon.

    I hope they will have each episode so people with out Netflix could watch it even if it is later than when they originally air.

    They have released House of Cards on DVD, so they'll probably do the same with these shows.

    I was hoping Luke Cage, Iron Fist and Jessica Jones would eventually show up on Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D , but I guess Marvel TV has different plans now.

    Nothing to say they couldn't show up before or after, as a kind of cross-promotion, although honestly I'd love to see these characters on Agents of SHIELD.

    From CBR:

    Later this morning, Disney CEO Bob Iger and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo are expected to announce plans to film the multi-part, live-action Netflix series featuring Marvel's street-level heroes in New York City.


    According to The Wall Street Journal, the incentives agreement is valued at about $4 million. Disney wouldn't confirm the information, but a press conference is expected to take place at 8 a.m. PT in "Good Morning America's" Times Square studios.


    Announced in November, the unprecedented 60-episode deal with Netflix calls for four 13-episode solo series featuring Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist, followed by a Defenders miniseries.


    Although the series are to be set in Marvel's version of Hell's Kitchen, the newspaper reports Disney initially considered several locations, including Toronto, before settling on New York City. Filming is expected to begin this summer.

    It would be fun if they'd have Jen Walters show up, in an episode of Daredevil. It would be an organic match (them both being lawyers. They could meet during a case).

    I hope that after The Defenders, they put Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist into one series called Heroes For Hire, bring in The Punisher into the Daredevil series and then have room for two spots for Blade and Moon Knight.
